Fewer GM Safety Devices Items Will Be Standard

In a cost-cutting move, General Motors will make consumers pay extra for safety items that were previously standard equipment.

GM plans to make buyers of most of its 2003 vehicles pay extra for
anti-lock brake systems and side air bags. These were previously
supplied as standard equipment.

Currently, GM has standard ABS on 52 of 58 models and standard
side air bags in 31 models and among 2003 models. After this change
takes effect, ABS will be standard only on six Cadillac and two Saab
models, plus Pontiac Bonneville, Chevrolet Corvette and Buick LeSabre.
Side air bags will remain standard on only Cadillacs and Saabs.
