GM Recalls Vehicles For Safety Concerns

Not only is Mazda recalling vehicles, but GM is as well. GMs recall will affect 243,000 SUVs in 2009 and 2010 with safety belt issues. The specific vehicles being recalled include:

  • Chevy Traverse
  • Buick Enclave
  • GMC Acadia
  • Saturn Outlook

Most of the vehicles were shipped within the U.S., but many others were exported to Canada, Saudi Arabia, Mexico and China.

So what’s the problem, specifically? According to GM:

(Source) GM said potential damage to the second-row safety belts could make it appear as if the latch were properly secured when it was not.

If you own one of the GM vehicles in question then GM will send you a letter informing you where to go for servicing, which will likely be your local GM dealership service department.

Earlier this month, Honda announced a recall of 428,000 vehicles in North America due to an ignition interlocking issue that might cause parked cars to roll away. Mazda’s recall is about power steering assist challenges. Toyota is experiencing stalling issues with some Corollas on the market and is being investigated by U.S. auto safety regulators. Toyota has recalled 11 million vehicles in the last year.
