2011 GMC Savana Recalls

There have been 3 safety recalls issued from NHTSA.

EQUIPMENT Recall Date: April 26, 2018
  • Summary: General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain 2009-2014 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra, 2009 GMC Topkick 5000, 6000, 7000 and 8000 Series and Isuzu F Series, and 2009-2018 Chevrolet Express, and GMC Savana vehicles, equipped with certain Plastic-Handle Fire Extinguishers or Push Button 'Pindicator' Fire Extinguishers. These extinguishers may become clogged, preventing the extinguisher from discharging as expected or requiring excessive force to activate the extinguisher. Additionally, in certain models, the nozzle may detach from the valve assembly with enough force that it could cause injury and also render the product inoperable.

2011 GMC Savana Warranty

GMC covers the Savana with a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The Savana also has a three-year/36,000-mile limited bumper-to-bumper warranty. Though that’s the same bumper-to-bumper warranty as the Ford E-Series, GMC outdoes Ford with its powertrain warranty. Ford’s lasts for the same amount of time, five years, but only for 60,000 miles. The GMC Savana’s warranty is the same one that’s provided on the Chevrolet Express.
