General Motors has announced no less than two separate recall campaigns for some of its models for different problems.
According to the North American based automotive giant, the first recall is affecting the 2015 model year Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize pickup trucks. This has been announced because “certain seat frame attachment hooks were not properly attached to the vehicle body during assembly”. GM is not aware of any crashes, injuries or fatalities related to this condition and its dealers will be inspecting the potentially affected seats for proper installation and make the necessary repairs if necessary. The total number of affected vehicles stands at 52,930 units, including 48,309 units sold in the U.S. and 4,620 sold in Canada.
Besides this midsize pickup truck recall, General Motors is also announcing another one for the Chevrolet Malibu, in the United States. This second recall is affecting no less than 437,04 units of the 2011 – 2012 Chevrolet Malibus because of the “flexible steel cable that connects the safety belt to the vehicle can fatigue and separate over time”. The company’s dealers will be replacing the outboard lap mounting bracket to relocate the tensioner slightly rearward and, if necessary, the lap pretensioner will be replaced too. The car manufacturer is aware of 36 claims related to this condition but no crashes or fatalities have been reported. However, a minor injury is known to have happened. For any extra details on the topic, owners of these cars should contact their local Chevy dealerships.
