USA: GM recalls 425,000 vans
General Motors reportedly is recalling about 425,000 full-size passenger and cargo vans because of reports that the seat belt buckles will not latch or unlatch.
The Associated Press said the recall affects the 2003-2006 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana.
The report said GM discovered the problem through an analysis of warranty claims - consumers reported problems latching the buckle or unlocking it once it was in place but there have been no reports of injuries.
AP said dealers would inspect the buckles and replace the upper buckle cover. If the restraint isn't working properly, dealers will replace the entire buckle assembly.
