GM has issued another round of safety recalls for a vehicles that are new and old. The five safety recalls are for over 300,000 vehicles from Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Pontiac and Saturn. The vehicles’ models years range from 2002 to 2015.
2002-2004 Saturn VUE (over 215,000 affected)
2013 Buick Encore, 2013 Cadillac ATS, 2013 Chevrolet Trax (over 70,000 vehicles affected)
The issue with these vehicles are a problem with front lap seat belts that do not lock in place. The defect in the belts can stop them from properly restraining passengers in a collision or during a sudden stop. This problem increases the chance of an injury occurring. GM has put a hold on the vehicles and has told dealerships to not sell the vehicles until they’re fixed. Owners of these vehicles will be notified by GM to take them to a dealership to have them repaired free of charge.
2013-2015 Chevrolet Impala (over 15,000 vehicles affected)
The LT and LTZ models of the Impala have a faulty latch on the front storage door. If the Impalas are hit from the rear, the collision can cause the door to swing open and injure passengers. GM has ordered a stop-sell for the vehicles until they’re fixed. Owners of the vehicle can take it to a dealership to have the inertia latch on the door fixed for free.
