General Motors is recalling more than 840,000 vehicles because the seatbelts on some trucks can fail to protect people during a crash, and other passenger cars have a faulty suspension component that can rust and fracture.
The seatbelts recall includes 624,000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks from 2012 to 2019; 2021 Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe and GMC Yukon XL trucks; and Silverado 2500; Silverado 3500; GMC Sierra 2500; and GMC Sierra 3500 trucks from 2020 and 2021, in which split bench seats can fail. Trucks with bucket seat options are not impacted.
The seatbelt brackets may not have been properly secured to the frame, making them susceptible to fail to restrain people during impact, the automaker said. There are no known injuries from crashes in these models, GM said.
Owners will get a notice from dealers in February to inspect and repair the brackets.
The suspension recall is over a faulty toe link, and includes: 213,000 Buick Regals from 2012 and 2013; the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu; and the Buick Lacrosse from 2010 through 2013, sold in states with winter weather and that salt their roads.
The toe link keeps the vehicle’s suspension stable. A coating on the link can chip off, exposing the metal to rust and eventual fracture.
The recall covers cars sold or registered at any time 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 and Washington, D.C.
Dealers will replace the toe links when the parts are ready. GM is sending a notice about the recall to owners on Feb. 15. Owners will get a second notice in March when the parts are available.
