GM Recalling 2 Million Vehicles
General Motors will recall approximately 2 million vehicles, including about 1.5 million
trucks and SUVs, for problems with seat belts. The list of vehicles affected in the recall
includes the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra crew-cab models; the Suburban, Yukon, Tahoe,
Avalanche and Escalade/EXT SUVs; and the Hummer H2. Seat belts in the center second-row
seat may be in the wrong position, which could injure passengers in a crash. No injuries,
however, have been reported.

General Motors plans to
recall more than 330,000 Suburban/Yukon XL SUVs for fuel pumps that could have wiring that
overheats, leading to stalling. Approximately 142,000 Silverado/Sierra 1500 trucks from
1999-2002 model years and 2001-2004 2500/3500 pickup trucks with manual transmissions are
being recalled for parking-brake problems — along with 69,000 Buick LaCrosse/Allures, for
brake clips that could result in a loss of braking; and 39,000 Buick Rendezvous and Pontiac
Azteks of the 2004 model year, which may have faulty ignition relays. Repairs will be made
free of charge.
