Find Out More About the GM Seat Belt Fire Recall

Affects a Number of Popular GM Models

Consumer Reports reported on the issue, which affects more than a half million vehicles. According to the Detroit auto giant, the fires may be caused due to an issue with the seat belt assembly.

In case of an accident, the seat belt pretentioners tighten belts. As a result, this part releases hot gases into other parts of the vehicle. This includes cotton materials in the carpet. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the driver may notice smoke or a burning smell prior to the actual fire. The recall affects 2019 to 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500s and GMC Sierra 1500s. It also includes 2020 Silverado 2500s, Silverado 3500s, as well as both Sierra 2500 and 3500 truck lines. This does not include every vehicle of these lines. Ones with vinyl flooring are not included.

Several of these models are among the most popular vehicles in the United States. The recall affects a number of major uses of these vehicles. Even worse, the fires burn during the most vulnerable time after a collision, which could lead to even further injury.
