GM recalls vehicles with driver's seat belt issue

The driver's seat belt pretensioner cable may become fatigued or break

Photo source: Chevrolet
General Motors is recalling about 23,000 model year 2015-2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500s, 2500s and 3500s, and Tahoe Police Pursuit and Special-Service vehicles.

The flexible steel cable connecting the driver's seat belt to the outboard side of the seat may be repeatedly bent over the seat side shield as the driver enters and exits the vehicle causing the cable to fatigue and separate.

If the pretensioner cable becomes fatigued or breaks, the driver may not be properly restrained in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

What to do

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the pretensioner cable and seat side-shield, free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 18156.
