I checked my VIN and it appears my car is unaffected.... I'll check my production date sticker to see if my car was outside the affected date range. Thanks for the info!

I saw the article earlier this week on gmauthority.com. I checked the GM Owner Center last night and there was nothing listed for my Equinox, as I have an earlier build.

Production Dates : JUN 27, 2017 - AUG 02, 2017

-Potential Number of Units Affected: 2,905 (Estimated percentage with defect: 3%)
Supplier Identification :

Component Manufacturer
Name : Nexteer
Address : 3900 E Holland Rd
Saginaw 48601-9494

Description of the Cause :

For the period from 6/13/2017 through 7/21/2017, the drive shaft supplier’s
quality check for metal hardening was performed with an ultrasonic scanning
machine that was not calibrated properly, limiting the likelihood of detecting
cracks that could have formed during the quenching process.

Nexteer reviewed its calibration records, and identified a June 13 to July 21 window of shaft build dates during
which the ultrasonic scanning machine used as a quality check to detect quench cracks was determined to have
been incorrectly calibrated.

Based on Nexteer’s information, all four affected GM assembly plants initiated quarantine efforts. By August 1,
and with Nexteer’s cooperation, all four plants were equipped to ultrasonically scan quarantined parts and
vehicles. Quarantined vehicles were either confirmed to have non-suspect components or repaired using
properly-tested components.

GM opened a formal investigation on August 4, 2017. The investigation was reviewed in GM’s Open
Investigation Review on August 14, 2017, and on August 15, 2017, GM’s Safety Field Action Decision Authority
(SFADA) decided to conduct a safety recall.
