GM Recalls 21,721 2014 Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra Trucks

Seatbacks May Move More Than Allowed by Government Standards

Edward A. SanchezOct 10, 2013
Spending by the federal government may be frozen as Congress and president Obama continue their budget standoff. NHTSA is not doing its usual job of posting recall notifications, but that doesn't mean the manufacturers are letting their guard down or neglecting to notify its customers of issues. Reuters and General Motors today reported the recall of 21,721 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 models for a safety defect regarding seatback deflection.
In the case of a severe rear-end collision, the seatbacks may move more than is allowed by government standards. The company has received no reports of accidents or injuries due to the possible defect. Owners can have their trucks' seats inspected and repaired if necessary by a GM dealer nationwide. Chevrolet owners can call 800-630-2438, and GMC owners can call 866-996-9463.
Of the affected models, 18,972 are in the U.S., 2575 are in Canada, 103 are in Mexico, and 71 are outside of North America. The 2014 Silverado Sierra also had a minor recall in July for airbags that might not fully inflate in a crash. Only 843 trucks were subject to that recall.
