GM Faces Safety Probe on Silverado Pickup

October 28, 2003|From Bloomberg News

General Motors Corp. faces a safety investigation and potential recall of 2 million of its 1999 to 2002 Chevrolet Silverado pickup trucks, the automaker's biggest-selling vehicle, because of tailgate cable failures.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it received 16 complaints, including five injuries, that tailgate cables broke.

The NHTSA also is investigating 444,000 of Ford Motor Co.'s Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable sedans from the 2000 and 2001 model years for problems with a brake-light switch that led to a recall in 2001.
