2012 GMC Savana
2012 GMC Savana
The full-size van segment is not one that has seen much innovation in the past several decades, and the GMC Savana is no exception. There is not much to be found in the way of class-leading features or whizbangery here, but then again, there's not much to change: the Savana offers simplicity and competence when hauling is the name of the game. It can be configured to hold up to fifteen passengers, making it an ideal vehicle for transporting a church group or a kids' soccer team, and it offers comfortable leg room even when the number of riders swells into the double digits. Alternatively, the Savana can be had as a cavernous cargo van with up to 284 cubic feet of space behind the front seats and the ability to tow up to 10,000 pounds. The Savana also serves as the perfect chassis on which to build a conversion van. There are few interior amenities, but the Savana comes with a standard AM/FM radio, single-zone air conditioning, and three cupholders. People who buy big vans like this aren't usually that concerned with fuel economy, and that's a good thing, because the Savana isn't particularly fuel efficient, especially with its top-spec V-8 engine. However, the Savana's combination of simplicity and versatility makes it a solid choice for anyone with a lot of people -- or stuff -- to transport.

FUEL SYSTEM, OTHER
Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) and IMPCO Automotive Division of IMPCO Technologies, Inc. (IMPCO) are recalling certain model year 2011-2013 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana Cargo vans that have a compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system installed as original equipment by IMPCO. The fuel systems, manufactured February 14, 2011, through February 20, 2013, have a fuel shut-off solenoid connector to the CNG tank that may corrode and form a short.
Consequences
A short at the connector may cause overheating, resulting in an increased risk of fire.
Remedy
GM will notify owners and GM dealers/fleets will perform the remedy which will include replacing the solenoid assemblies and fuel pump fuses and adjusting the wiring routing. The recall began on August 5, 2013. GM's number for this recall is 13139. Impco's number for this recall is FA13GM001. Owner's may contact GM Fleet Action Center at 1-800-353-3867.

AIR BAGS:FRONTAL
Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2009-2014 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans manufactured January 27, 2009, through March 7, 2014 with a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds and less and equipped with front passenger air bags. In the affected vehicles, during a frontal impact below the air bag deployment threshold, if an unbelted front passenger's head hits the instrument panel above where the passenger air bag is located, the panel may not sufficiently absorb the impact. As such, these vehicles fail to meet the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 201, "Occupant Protection in Interior Impact."
Consequences
In the event of a crash below the air bag deployment threshold, an unbelted front passenger seat occupant has an increased risk of injury.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will modify the passenger instrument panel free of charge. Notices to the owners of the heavy duty vans were mailed on April 28, 2014. The recall began on May 19, 2014. Chevrolet owners may call 1-800-630-2438. GMC owners may call 1-866-996-9463. GM's number for this recall is 14082.
