GM recalls 840K vehicles for seat belt, suspension problems

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT

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.

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. The rear toe links can rust and fail on 213,000 of the vehicles.

A coating on the links can chip away, exposing the metal and allowing rust. That can cause the links to fracture.

The recall covers vehicles sold or ever registered in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin or Washington, D.C.

GM says it has no reports of crashes or injuries.

Dealers will replace the toe links when parts are available. Owners will get a notice on Feb. 15 and a second notice when parts are ready around March 15.

GM recalls old SUVs as suspension problem can affect steering

General Motors is recalling more than 380,000 older SUVs in the U.S., many for a second time, to fix a suspension problem that can cause them to sway at highway speeds.

GM decided on the recall after the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened an investigation last year. The recall covers 2010 through 2016 Cadillac SRX and 2011 and 2012 Saab 9-4X SUVs. GM once owned Saab and manufactured its vehicles.

GM says in government documents that the rear suspension toe link adjuster may not have been tightened properly, which could result in a loose toe link. The toe link keeps the rear suspension stable and keeps the tires on the ground.

Owners are being told not to drive their vehicle if they see certain dashboard warning lights or experience unusual steering behavior. Dealers will replace the adjustable toe link with a non-adjustable one at no cost to owners, who will be notified by letter starting Aug. 9.

Most of the vehicles were first recalled in September of 2014. NHTSA opened an investigation of the problem in November of 2020 after getting nine complaints from owners, including two involving crashes. The agency said three people were hurt.

GM says that in rare cases, dealers or independent repair shops may not have followed procedures for tightening a toe link nut. A loose toe link can make a vehicle wander on the highway or allow water into the threads on the adjuster, the company says.

GM recalls more than 350,000 SUVs over suspension issue

General Motors is recalling more than 350,000 SUVs over a suspension issue, according to government documents reviewed by The Associated Press.

The recall includes Cadillac SRX made from 2010 to 2016 and Saab 9-4X SUVs made in 2011 and 2012.

The issue includes a rear suspension toe link that was not properly tightened in the vehicles, which could lead to steering issues, GM said, according to the AP.

The recall came after an investigation was launched into the vehicles in 2020 by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The investigation began after three people were injured in crashes, which were among nine complaints regarding the vehicles, the AP noted.

This is the second time the vehicles have been recalled, with the first being in 2014.

Vehicle owners will receive letters about the issue starting Aug. 9 and will be able to get the vehicles fixed free of charge, the AP noted.

GM recalls 840K vehicles for seat belt, suspension problems

DETROIT — General Motors is recalling nearly 840,000 U.S. vehicles 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 pickups. Also included are the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe and GMC Yukon XL, and the 2020 and 2021 Silverado and Sierra 2500 and 3500. All have bench seats. 

GM says the seat belt brackets may not have been secured to the frame, so the belts may not hold people in a crash. Dealers will inspect the brackets and reassemble them.

This news comes about a month after GM announced a recall on 7 million big pickup trucks and SUVs worldwide to replace potentially dangerous Takata air bag inflators. 

Exploding Takata inflators caused the largest series of auto recalls in U.S. history, with at least 63 million inflators recalled. The U.S. government says that as of September, more than 11.1 million had not been fixed. About 100 million inflators have been recalled worldwide.

Drivers can check to see if their vehicles have been recalled by going to https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls and keying in their 17-digit vehicle identification number.

GM recalls 1 million trucks, SUVs

DETROIT -- General Motors is recalling an estimated 380,000 Cadillac and Saab SUVs over a potential suspension issue that can affect steering on the vehicles. According to the Associated Press, the recall impacts 2010 through 2016 Cadillac SRX and 2011 and 2012 Saab 9-4X SUVs.

GM previously owned the Saab brand and was responsible for manufacturing the cars involved in this recall.

An investigation opened by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration last year led to the decision to recall the SUVs. A closer look at the problem revealed the rear suspension toe link adjuster may not have been tightened properly, GM said in government documents surrounding the recall. That loose link adjuster could result in a loose toe link which is responsible for keeping the rear suspension stable and ensuring the tires stay on the ground.

Most of the vehicles involved in the recall were previously recalled in 2014, however the NHTSA received nine complaints from owners that included two crashes where three people were hurt. GM says although the cars were recalled once, dealers or independent repair shops may not have followed procedures for tightening a toe link nut, the AP reports.

GM dealerships will replace the adjustable toe link with a non-adjustable one. Owners will be notified by letter starting Aug. 9 and will not have to pay for the repair. Until a repair is made, GM is encouraging owners of affected vehicles not to drive their SUV if they see certain dashboard warning lights or experience unusual steering behavior.
