#2

Go to Chevy’s website, go to the lookup recalls section, then enter your vin and it’ll tell you if there are any outstanding recalls on your vehicle


#3

If you are having problems with Android Auto one suggestion would be to call your dealer and ask if they have a special person on hand that can help you with infotainment questions. After you check the recall list.


#4

Recalls are usually safety related. An infocenter issue will likely not have a recall. What is the status of your warranty? This may still be covered depending on mileage and age. The dealer service dept may have a ‘goodwill’ campaign to help.


#5

“Recalls” are usually for safety or emissions, but there’s another category called “customer interest” to address problems like this. If it’s a design or manufacturing error that is. A dealership would know one way or the other. If it is a common-enough problem to have a bulletin published, but considered just “one of those things”, that would be included w/the generic technical service bulletins for the vehicle.

This is a General Motors service bulletin with connection instructions for Android auto;
