General Motors Recalls 2001 Chevrolet Venture, 2001 Pontiac Aztec, 2001 Pontiac Montana, & 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette

(SafetyAlerts) -  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting the 2001 Chevrolet Venture, 2001 Pontiac Aztec, 2001 Pontiac Montana, & 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette.

Potential Number of Units Affected: 75,816

Manufactured: April - October 2000

Defect: Certain minivans and sport utility vehicles built with second row 50/50 split bench seats or captain's chairs fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 225, "Child Restraint Anchorage Systems." The seat latch anchor wire diameter is greater than 6.1 mm, potentially inhibiting the installation of child restraints.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect the latch anchor wires and repair those with an improper diameter. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during March/April 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020, Pontiac at 1-800-762-2737, or Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537.
