Chevrolet Express 3500 Recalls
On certain vans, the front and rear seat belts will not latch or unlatch.
One of the power steering hoses may not be able to contain the pressure of the system and may rupture. If this were to happen, power steering assist would be lost and steering effort would increase. On vehicles equipped with hydro-boost brakes, braking effort would also increase. If power steering fluid were to spray on hot engine parts, an engine compartment fire could also occur.
The hydraulic brake booster may fail and leak fluid. The loss of fluid would cause increased steering and braking effort and a crash could occur without warning.
The transmission shift lever position and the transmission indicator may no longer correlate. If this were to occur, the vehicle may not move in the expected direction.
A problem with the hydro-boost system may reduce braking assist and slightly increase the steering effort while braking.
Some vans may have been produced with seat belt assemblies with a brittle latch. The belt may not restrain the seat occupants as needed in a crash.
The owner's manual does not explain the child restraint anchor location symbols. This does not meet the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard.
The rear license plate light socket may corrode from water entry and melt.
In certain crash conditions, the front seat belt buckles may not release after a crash, or the seat belt latch may be ejected during the crash.
