GM announces a voluntary recall of 2014 and 2015 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks due to a potential problem with the seat belt attachment that globally affects 1,037,892 pickups.

The problem has to do with 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 is a preemptive action to resolve a potential safety problem. The seat belt connection problem was discovered after looking at the warranty claims. The company reports no crashes, injuries or fatalities related to this issue.

895,232 of the affected trucks were sold in the United States. GM will notify owners so that they can bring their trucks into the dealership for a seatbelt connector repair or a complete replacement.

GM has a very similar recall related to the 2011-2012 Chevy Malibu sedans and Lambda-platform large crossovers made between 2009 and 2014.

The updated 2016 model year pickup trucks are not affected by the recall. Check out this fun comparison between the 2016 GMC Sierra 6.2L V8 versus the 2016 Chevy Silverado 5.3L V8. Which V8 is better?
