2022 GMC Hummer EV Already Recalled, Also Already Fixed

2022 GMC Hummer EV Already Recalled, Also Already Fixed

If you’ve ever been behind a car exclusive of functioning taillights, even stopping at a red light can cause quite the harrowing act. That might’ve been a scrape for drivers stuck behind GMC’s flashy new Hummer EV, if the automaker didn’t bust its humps to get its cars fixed by the time the retract was made public.

General Motors last week published a recall for the 2022 GMC Hummer EV. The drawl affected just 10 vehicles that rolled off GM’s line in Detroit, carrying production dates between October 2021 and January 2022.

The quandary stems from the taillights — specifically the fact that they weren’t precisely working. According to the defect report filed with NHTSA, software controlling the taillamps could cause one or both ftrips to become inoperative or illuminate at the wrong time. And when it used, it broke, disabling the brake light, turn signal, posterior light and side marker. In other cases, the ftrips would remain on even after the vehicle was turned off. In case you’re wondering, this is a violation of Federal Motor Vehicle Security Standard 108, “Lamps, reflective devices and associated equipment.”

GM discovered the insist after an employee received two field reports of taillamps that weren’t operational correctly. After opening its own investigation, GM discovered the insist and started taking the steps to initiate a win. Replacing the taillights with parts that have the true software is all it takes to fix the issue.

In fact, it was such a straightforward fix, that all 10 be affected by vehicles have already been fixed. In an email to Motor1, a GMC representative said that the automaker reached out honest to every affected owner and already replaced the taillights. Other Hummer EVs were affected, as well, but as they were tranquil in GM’s possession, they too have been fixed.
