DETROIT (AP) — General Motors is recalling nearly 840,000 vehicles in the U.S. for suspension problems or because the front seat belts can fail.
The seat belt recall covers 624,000 2019 through 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks. Also included are the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe and GMC Yukon XL, and the 2020 and 2021 Silverado 2500 and 3500 and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500.
All have split bench seats. Pickups with bucket seats are not affected.
GM says in government documents that the seat belt brackets may not have been secured to the seat frame. That means the belts may not properly restrain people in a crash. The company says it doesn’t know of any crashes or injuries.
GM will notify owners starting Feb. 1 and dealers will inspect the seat belt brackets and assemble them correctly.
