General Motors issues recall on Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) -- General Motors is recalling more than a million Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks worldwide because the seat belts may not hold people in a crash.

The recall covers certain model 1500 pickups from the 2014 and 2015 model years. GM says a steel cable that connects the belts to the trucks can wear and separate over time. If that happens, the belts could come loose.

The company says it found the problem by analyzing warranty data. GM says there haven't been any reports of crashes or injuries.

Dealers will enlarge an opening and install a bracket on the cable tensioner. If necessary they'll replace the tensioner.

Most of the trucks are in the U.S. and Canada, but some are in Latin America and the Middle East.
