Defect: Vans equipped with sliding side doors were improperly remedied during a safety campaign (95V197/95-C-58) between July 18, 1997 and February 6, 1999. The sliding side-door rear latch was replaced with a latch that was improperly riveted. In the event of a vehicle crash, the door could fail to perform as required and injuries could result.
Remedy: Dealers will replace these latches. Owner notification is expected to begin during June 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC at 1-800-462-8782.
