The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

  • General Motors is recalling certain 2017-2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500 and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 trucks. The front seat belt retractor assemblies were built with the incorrect torsion bar. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 209, “Seat Belt Assemblies.” The seat belt retractors may not perform as intended during a crash, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 38,048 units are affected by this recall.
  • General Motors is recalling certain 2015-2016 GMC Sierra 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500, and Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500 trucks. The roof-rail air bag (RRAB) inflator end cap may detach from the inflator. If the end cap separates from the inflator, the compressed gas will escape and the end cap can be propelled into the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury or a crash. NHTSA says potentially 9,279 units are affected by this recall.
  • Isuzu Technical Center of America is recalling certain 2020 Isuzu NPR-HD Gas and 2020 Chevrolet 4500 trucks equipped with 6.6-liter gasoline engines. The positive cable connecting the battery to the starter may be too long and may have been routed too close to the right-side exhaust pipe. Over time, heat from the exhaust pipe may cause the conduit and insulation to deteriorate, exposing the wires, possibly causing a short circuit which could result in a no-start condition or a fire. NHTSA says potentially 46 units are affected by this recall.
  • Isuzu Technical Center of America is recalling certain 2020 NPR-HD and Chevrolet 4500 vehicles equipped with 6.6L gasoline engines. The chassis harness and the coolant return hose from the radiator to the reservoir (surge hose) may chafe. Continued chafing could cause wear in the harness and/or hose, ultimately causing a hole in the hose with the potential for engine coolant to leak and/or causing damage to the harness with the potential for a short circuit. Leaking engine coolant and/or a damaged wire harness may result in a no-start condition, an engine stall, or an electrical short. These scenarios increase the risk of a crash or fire. NHTSA says potentially 46 units are affected by this recall.
  • Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain 2021 Four Winds motorhomes, equipped with Dometic 3 burner cooking stoves. The saddle valve securing bolt may be overtightened, possibly damaging the o-ring seal and causing a continuous gas leak. A gas leak can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 190 units are affected by this recall.
