2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Recalled Due to Potentially Dangerous Seats

Just months after the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra half ton pickups began hitting dealerships around the country; General Motors has announced a voluntary recall of some 21,721 new trucks because the front seats could move in the event of a hard rear end collision.

The 21,721 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups affected by this recall are equipped with manual front reclining seats so those trucks included in the recall are most likely lower cost trimline models. General Motors is concerned that in the event of a hard rear end collision, these manually adjusted seatbacks could release and that unexpected movement increases the likelihood of an injury. This unwanted movement of the seatback during a hard collision is also in violation of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard requirement on seat safety and even though there have been no reported occurrences of this problem in the real world, a recall is a must so that this problem can be rectified before there are any injuries during hard impacts.

The technology etsxis to manufacture a vehicle that would last for twenty years (or more), and get 100 miles per gallon (or more). But the oil companies, in collusion with the automobile manufacturers and United States government, aren't going to allow that to happen until they've ****** every drop of oil out of the good Earth. Do you really think General Motors wants you to buy a top notch truck' that you'd be able to drive for 500,000 miles? No; they want to you to continue going into debt for another top notch truck' every couple of years so that they can keep sales booming. -RKO-
