A seat belt issue prompted General Motors to issue a voluntary recall to an estimated 1.04 million vehicles, bulk of which are in the U.S., an April 15 report of CNBC stated.
The recall affects the 2014-2015 models of GMC Sierra 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado vehicles. According to reports, the seat belt may fail to protect the driver in accidents if the flexible steel cable connecting the seat belt is damaged. GM found, through their warranty claims, that the problem may occur if the driver repetitively bends the cable with everyday use. GM stated there were no incidents of accidents or injuries before they issued the recall. Some 895,232 of the recalled vehicles reportedly were in the U.S. and approximately 142,000 were sold in other countries. GM dealers will repair the affected vehicles by replacing or improving the seat belt tensioner unit.

At least 615,000 recent models of Toyota Sienna minivans were recalled due to a potential malfunction in the transmission that may cause the vehicle to roll away, a report stated on Thursday, September 26.
In the recall, the 2004-2005 and 2007-2009 Sienna minivan models may roll away if the shift lock solenoid is damaged and the lever moves out from the “Park” position by itself. At least 21 accidents and two injuries have been reported as a result of the defect.
According to a Toyota spokesperson, the shift lever still needs to be moved in order to put it out of the “Park” mode. Owners of the recalled Siennas should have their dealer install a new shift lock solenoid.
