General Motors is recalling nearly 21,721 units of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Series 1500 pickups due to the possibility that seats may move in a rear-end collision. The recall will cover 18,972 Silverados and Sierra Series 1500 vehicles in the United States, 2,575 in Canada, 103 in Mexico and 71 exports.
The vehicles’ manual front reclining seatbacks may fail to meet a federal safety requirement for performance when hit from the rear. In a statement, GM said that no injuries have so far been reported due to the seats.
GM dealers will inspect the recalled vehicle and make adjustments to the seatbacks if necessary. According to GM spokesman Alan Adler, the work will be covered under the new vehicle warranty. In July, GM issued a recall of 843 Silverado and Sierras due to an issue with the passenger airbag that caused some to not fully inflate during crashes.
