As it turns out, the company has already issued another recall for its 2017 Chevrolet Silverado and Buick Traverse, which are currently being recalled due to a potential defect in the lithium ion battery cells that power their electrics.
The battery is a critical component of a wide range of vehicles, from pickups to sport utility vehicles.
As the company explains, “The lithium ion batteries in vehicles that use this type of charging technology are subject to an extremely high failure rate and can cause serious damage to the battery.
The failure rate can be significantly higher if the vehicle is equipped with an improperly installed charger.
As a result, it is recommended that owners replace their batteries.”
Unfortunately, as with the first recall, the vehicle was not one of the affected vehicles.

As for the Silverado, which is one of just a few vehicles affected, the problem is still unknown.
According to the recall notice, the battery can become a high-stress environment, causing the electrics to fail.
According the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, lithium ion cells in electrics are prone to a variety of defects, including corrosion, shorting out, short-circuit, short circuit, or short-life.
As such, they are prone of failing, especially if they are installed in a manner that fails to properly connect the battery and the charger.
For that reason, owners should not use a battery-operated vehicle, such as a pickup truck or SUV, with lithium ion powertrain cells, and should only use a lithium ion-powered vehicle with a charger with a proper connector that’s capable of safely reconnecting the battery to the charger before connecting the vehicle to the chargers.
As of today, there are no other reported issues affecting the 2017 Silverado.
