Body, Interior & Misc., March 15, 2006

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Some cargo vans may not have a tire and loading information label on the driver's door frame because they were incorrectly labeled as incomplete vehicles. This does not conform to the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, and the owner may not know the correct tire size and could overload the vehicle. Owners will be sent new tire and loading information labels and certification labels. If needed, the customer can have the dealer install the labels. The recall began March 15, 2006. The GM recall number is 06009.

For Models: Buick Terraza, Chevrolet Uplander, Pontiac Montana, Saturn Relay

Brakes, November 14, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Certain sport utility vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Safety Standard # 135 "Passenger Car Brake Systems" To meet the standard, vehicles must not move for 5 minutes when stopped on a steep hill with the parking brake applied and the vehicle in neutral. Some of these vehicles failed this test. When the parking brake is released the driver may notice unintended braking while accelerating, decelerating or coasting. This could lead to unintended vehicle movement and cause an accident. The dealer will inspect each rear parking brake caliper and replace free of charge if slippage is noticed. The GM recall # is 05059

For Models: Chevrolet Uplander, Pontiac Montana, Saturn Relay

Body, Interior & Misc., April 5, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The outboard release handle on a second row bucket seat may be activated during a side impact crash. This could cause the rear seat latches to disengage, increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupant. Dealers will remove the seat latch release handle and install a plastic cap to eliminate this side impact safety concern. This recall is expected to begin on April 5, 2005. The General Motors recall number is 05015.
