With information becoming more digitized, some may say that General Motors’ newest technological edition was just a long time coming. Treading forward into the modern technology driven society, GM is launching a smartphone app that will allow its vehicle owners to check for any open recalls they may be subject to. Included in the app’s “Vehicle Status” section, is the “Check For Recalls” tab. Clicking on this tab will pull up any information on open recalls affecting the vehicle, directing users to their preferred dealership to inquire about repairs.
In doing this, GM hopes to increase efforts to get owners to comply with vehicle call backs. “It’s an easy way to make people aware of recalls and give them the information they need to take the next step,” said Tim Babbitt, senior manager of connected applications at GM. Recall notification is just one of the new features included in the smartphone app which will be offered starting July 18 under each of GM’s four brands, as myGMC, myChevrolet, myBuick and myCadillac.
