2019-2020 Chevrolet Equinox: Recall Alert

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 300 model-year 2019-20 Chevrolet Equinox SUVs equipped with all-wheel drive

The Problem: The fuel tanks may have been manufactured with an improperly sealed seam, possibly allowing fuel to leak along the seam near the fuel inlet that, in the presence of the ignition source, can increase the risk of a fire.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the fuel tank for free.

What Owners Should Do: Chevrolet manufacturer GM did not immediately provide an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-222-1020, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
