General Motors is voluntarily recalling 1,037,982 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 models due to a potential seatbelt safety issue.
The pickups affected are 2014-15 models and the potential fault, which surfaced through warranty data, has not been a cause of accident, injury or fatality.
A flexible steel cable that fixes the seatbelt to the vehicle can fatigue and separate and over time and as a result start to bend under the stress of owners getting into and out of the pickup .
GM will be contacting owners of all affected trucks globally in the coming days.
The Chevrolet Silverado is the second most popular vehicle currently on sale in the US. The pickup is also sold in Canada, Mexico and the Middle East. GM estimates that recalls in the US alone will represent 895,232 trucks.
