GM Canada recalls 14,000 Chevrolet Trax over faulty control arms


General Motors Canada is recalling nearly 14,000 Chevrolet Trax compact utility vehicle because their lower control arms could break due to poor welds.

Transport Canada warns the problem could cause a loss of steering control.

The 13,683 affected vehicles are from the model years 2015 through 2018.

GM says it will notify owners about the problem by mail. 

Owners will be told to take their vehicle to a dealer to have the front lower control-arm assemblies inspected and replaced if necessary.

The latest recall is an expansion of one issued in April and covered 8,585 Trax vehicles from 2017-2019.

Trax sales are down an estimated 14 per cent to 2,815 units through August when compared to the same time last year, according to the Automobile News | Data Center in Detroit.

General Motors’ sales statistics are estimates now that the automaker reports only on a quarterly basis.
