GM Recalls Over 550,000 Pickup Trucks Over Fire Risk

General Motors has issued a recall for 556,399 Chevrolet and GMC pickup trucks due to an identified fire risk. Hot fumes released by the vehicles’ pretensioners may travel through an opening in the seat belt bracket and cause the carpet to catch fire. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has indicated that the driver may see or smell smoke before a flame is visible following a collision.
