GMC Sonoma, Chevrolet S10 and Oldsmobile Bravada Automobiles Recalled

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting 2000 GMC Sonoma, Chevrolet S10 and Oldsmobile Bravada automobiles manufactured between March and November 1999.

Certain light duty pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles were built with incorrect payload information on the vehicle certification label. The payload shown on the label is greater than the maximum validated payload.

If the vehicle is loaded to the incorrectly labeled payload, it may not ride and handle in the manner that the driver expects. This could result in a loss of control of the vehicle or an inability to stop the vehicle within expected stopping distances.

223,194 automobiles are affected by this recall.

Owners will be sent a new label for installation on the driver's door of the vehicle.

The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 18, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free label within a reasonable time should contact GMC at 1-800-462-8782, Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020, or Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537.
