    ’14-15 GM Pickups Subject to Recall

    Press Release:

    DETROIT – GM is voluntarily recalling 895,232 model year 2014-15 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups in the United States because the flexible steel cable that connects the seat belt to the vehicle can fatigue and separate over time as a result of the driver repeatedly bending the cable when entering the seat.

    This issue was discovered through warranty data, and there have been no reports of crashes, injuries or fatalities related to this issue.

    For trucks in the field, dealers will enlarge the side shield opening, install a pusher bracket on the tensioner, and if necessary, replace the tensioner assembly.

    The recall in the United States includes a stop-sale of approximately 3,000 new 2014 and 2015 model year pickups still on dealer lots. Dealers will repair the vehicles prior to delivering them to customers.

    Customers will be notified by General Motors. They also can look up their vehicle identification number (VIN) at either https://vinrcl.safercar.gov/vin/ website or at https://my.gm.com/web/portal/ownercenter to see if their vehicle is part of the recall.

    GM also will voluntarily recall and repair these models in other countries where they are sold, including Canada, Mexico, and several countries in Latin America and the Middle East. The total number of trucks to be recalled globally is 1,037,982. The cost of the recall is not expected to be significant and is covered within normal and customary warranty reserves.

    Hmmm...
    I'm just about due for a free oil change and tire rotation anyway.

    I just had mine serviced Wednesday. Guess they didn't know then because they didn't say anything.

    Nice, we're actually considering a crew cab with that drivetrain. Hoping to find one under 20k miles, too.

    If I may ask, what trim level and major options did you get, and how much did you get it for OTD?

    Rear defogger

    Before tax an fees - $30,900

    Per local market, it was priced below a comparable Silverado. I lucked into a deal.
