GM recalling pickup trucks over seat belt issue

Detroit, Mich. (CNN) — General Motors is recalling more than a million pickup trucks worldwide over a seat belt issue.

GM said on Friday that it’s recalling 2014 and 2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks.

The automaker says a flexible steel cable that connects the seat belt to the truck can wear out over time and eventually snap.

GM said it wasn’t aware of any crashes, injuries or deaths as a result of the defect, which came to light through examining warranty data.

Most of the recalled vehicles were sold in the United States, but some are in the Middle East, Latin America and Mexico. The automaker says repairs won’t cost the company much, and will be free to owners.
