Chevrolet RecallsFront Suspension Control Arm Welds Fail
The front suspension upper control arms may have welds that are not sufficient, resulting in separation of the arm from the bushing. Dealers will replace both the left and right upper control arms and realign the vehicle suspension free of charge to resolve the concern.
The occupant classification system may not appropriately detect an occupant in the passenger front seat, and as a result may not power the passenger frontal air bag for deployment in an accident. Dealers will reprogram the air bag control unit and occupant classification system electronic control unit in some vehicles, replacing the occupant classification system electronic control unit additionally in other vehicles free of charge to resolve the concern.
The tensioner cable for the driver's seat belt may be positioned such that the driver slides over it, resulting in fatigue of this cable. This could cause it to separate from the seat belt. The driver may not be properly protected in a crash if this happens. Dealers will modify vehicles to prevent the tensioner from being damaged, and will repair any tensioner that has already been damaged free of charge to resolve the concern.
