General Motors is recalling almost 840,000 vehicles in the U.S., due to suspension issues or problems with front seat belts.
According to the automaker, the seat-belt brackets may not have been secured to the frame, so the belts might fail to hold people in a crash. Dealers will inspect the brackets and reassemble them. The seat-belt recall incudes 624,000 2019 through 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks. 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 are also included. Pickups with bucket seats are not affected. Owners will be notified starting February 1.
The suspension recall covers the 2012 and 2013 Buick Regal, the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu, and the 2010 through 2013 Buick Lacrosse midsize cars that were sold or registered in salt-belt states. Owners will be notified on Feb. 15, and then around March 15 when parts are ready,
The latest recall report follows last month’s announcement from GM that it would recall 6 million pickup trucks and SUVs after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said they had potentially faulty airbags.
