Additional information:

Among the 72 recalls the NHTSA has announced this May comes news of the following:

General Motors LLC (“GM”) has recalled an estimated 23,004 model year 2015-2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 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.

According to the NHTSA, if 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.

GM will notify registered 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.
