GM To Recall 6,000 Model Year 2002 SUV's

Dayton, OH (SafetyAlerts) - General Motors Corp. plans to recall 6,000 sport utility vehicles because of a safety concern over a suspension part, according to a wire service story carried on Yahoo News.

The recall affects the 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer, 2002 GMC Envoy or 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada. The company is advising consumers to stop driving the vehicles immediately.

"If the component failed, it could cause some concerns with vehicle control," Morrissey said. "We're asking customers to stop driving the vehicles and asking dealers to pick up the vehicles and provide alternate transportation."

Morrissey said the part in question is on the lower control arm of the front suspension. He said there have been no reports of accidents or injuries.
