Recall Fallout: GM Halts Sales On Some Lansing-Made Models

Posted: Updated:
(WLNS) – General Motors issued four separate recalls Tuesday involving over two million vehicles.

One of the recalls involves vehicles built at the Delta Plant in Lansing.

Dealers have been told to stop selling new and used models of the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and the GMC Acadia, from the 2009 – 2014 model years.

Saturn Outlooks, from model years 2009-2010 are also being recalled because front safety belt cables can wear out and separate over time.

GM has told dealers not to sell new or used models of these vehicles until repairs are made.

Other recalls announced Tuesday are 2004 through 2008 Chevy Malibus and 2005 through 2008 Pontiac G6's, 2015 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV's and a handful of 2015 Chevy Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD full sized pick-ups.

This latest recalls bring the total number of recalled GM vehicles to 13.6 million, a record for the automaker and the year isn't even half over.

6 News has been following the story, we've tried reaching out to the union officials and workers, but they refused to give us a comment outside GM’s Delta Township plant.

GM did say in a statement released to 6 News a steel cable that connects seat belts in the front seat belt of the recalled crossovers can become worn and separate...potentially causing injuries.

Local dealers have been told to stop selling these vehicles, but GM has not told the owners to stop driving the crossovers they already own.

GM said there have been no deaths associated with the faulty seat belts in the crossovers.

Again we reached out to a g-m spokesperson in charge of recall communications but he declined to comment on camera about other details of the recall.
