2016 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 1500 - SEAT BELTS:FRONT
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain 2015-2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2500 and 3500, and Tahoe Police Pursuit and Special-Service vehicles. The flexible steel cable connecting the driver's seat belt to the outboard side of the seat may be repeatedly bent over the seat side shield as the driver enters and exits the vehicle causing the cable to fatigue and separate.
HazardIf the pretensioner cable becomes fatigued or breaks, the driver may not be properly restrained in the event of a crash, increasing their risk of injury.
Consumer ActionGM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the pretensioner cable and seat side-shield, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 18156.
