can you send a pic of what the recall looks like after it is fixed on 2012 Chevrolet express explorer

Do you drive a 2012 CHEVROLET EXPRESS?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
