Filed under Trailer News

General Motors is recalling an additional 900,000 vehicles for problems with tailgate
cables. This recall is separate from the previous one that involved approximately four
million model-year 2000-04 GM light trucks and SUVs because of faulty tailgate cables.

recalls are due to cables that corrode and break. This latest recall covers 1999-2000 model
Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra full-size pickups.

More than 80 injuries have been
attributed to the defect, but no accidents or deaths have been reported.
