2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD recalled

Park brake cable assembly triggers recall for the big Chevy.

A RECALL has been issued by the ACCC for 107 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HDs that were purchased through HSV dealers nationally.

The problem? A faulty park brake cable assembly may have been incorrectly manufactured, which means the “fitting at the end of the cable may become detached during use, posing a risk of the park brake releasing unexpectedly”.

The recall report says HSV will directly contact all owners of affected vehicles, who will be advised to take their pick-ups to their nearest HSV dealer for inspection and reparation.

Back in July, six Silverado 2500HDs were also recalled due to incorrectly fitted rear belt buckles.

The massive Silverado 2500HD is powered by a 6.6-litre V8 turbo-diesel that delivers 332kW and plenty of newton-metres … 1234Nm, in fact. Road-test editor Fraser Stronach got behind the wheel of 2500HD WT recently and his review is in the December magazine, in stores now.

HSV imports the Silverado into Australia and converts them to RHD for the Australian market.
