A First Minor Recall for the GMC Hummer EV
The GMC Hummer EV has only just made its U.S. debut (it will be launching later this year in Canada), and now it has undergone another rite of passage, that of a first recall. Happily for Hummer EV owners and for General Motors, the problem is a minor one and not expensive to fix. Still, it’s worth noting, as all recalls are.
That’s because it involves safety, of course, but also because when it comes to brand-new models, it’s always worth noting to see what kind of glitches might be cropping up. As it happens, in this case we may be looking at one of the cheapest recalls in General Motors history. For one thing, only 10 units have to be called back for the fix.
The problem requiring that fix? According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 2022 Hummer EVs manufactured between Oct. 5, 2021, and Jan. 20, 2022, do not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, which relates to “lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment.”
