GM has added numerous improvements into its 2011 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra Heavy-Duty full-size pickups, but barely a month after production began at the Flint assembly plant, the company recently decided to suspend it in order to trace and repair a defective part.

The exact component remains undisclosed, but three shifts of production were canceled late last week on Thursday/Friday, until the problem was fixed. However, production of the trucks has now resumed. Those pickups that had already been shipped to dealers before the problem was identified will be recalled and the suspect part replaced before final delivery to customers.
