Chronology :

GM filed a part 573 noncompliance report for this issue on October 26, 2016. On November 18, 2016, GM petitioned NHTSA for an exemption from the Safety Act’s notification and remedy requirements on the basis that this noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety.

On August 31, 2021, NHTSA published its denial of GM’s petition. At the time of NHTSA’s denial, all but 181 vehicles covered by GM’s original part 573 report had been corrected during ordinary-course service events.

GM will conduct a noncompliance recall to address the remaining 181 vehicles.

On September 7, 2021, GM amended its original part 573 report. On September 24, 2021, NHTSA requested that GM file a new part 573 filing for this condition.
