GM issues recall after tire pressure problems

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - General Motors is issuing a recall because the tire pressure checking system on its 2012 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain does not meet federal standards.

The tire pressure warning light will not illuminate once the pressure is 25 percent below the recommended cold tire pressure.

The recall affects more than 33,000 of the SUVs built from July 18 through September 6.

GM dealers will fix the problem for free.
