Faulty Seat Belts Lead GM To Recall Almost 900,000 Silverados And Sierras

Recall

Try not to panic.

First, the bad news: 895,232 2014-2015 GMC Sierras and Chevrolet Silverados are being recalled. Now, the good news: The recall is voluntary and no injuries or deaths have been attributed to it. The recall is for an issue with the seat belt. Apparently a flexible steel cable that connects the belts to the truck can break after repeated use. Of course that sounds scary but again, no injuries or deaths have been reported. Now these 895,232 trucks are located in the US. Globally the recall has ensnared 1,037,982 GMC and Chevy pickups.

This global recall includes trucks sold in Mexico, Canada, the Middle East as well as several countries in Latin America. You can check to see if your truck is one of the unlucky ones by going here, and if it is head down to your local dealership to get the issue fixed. While it sucks for GM that this recall is so large—albeit voluntary—at least its dominant mid-size offerings also weren't caught up in it. That would be the GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado. Sometimes it’s best to see the glass as half full, especially when it comes to recalls.
