GM ANNOUNCES SAFETY RECALLS

 GM ANNOUNCES SAFETY RECALLS
 DETROIT, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- General Motors (NYSE: GM) said today


it is conducting two passenger car safety recalls to replace mechanical safety components affecting front seat shoulder belts and parking brakes.
 Owners are being notified now. Dealers will replace all necessary parts at no charge. No accidents or injuries have been reported from either condition.
 The first recall involving certain 1991 Chevrolet Cavalier and Pontiac Sunbird models affects some 60,000 vehicles. It was found that the parts being replaced did not meet design specifications. They are called interlock striker studs. Their purpose is to help keep the front doors in place during a collision so the door frame won't collapse, thus causing the shoulder belt anchors to fail.
 The second recall involves parking brake lever assemblies which also did not meet design specifications. As a result, the assembly may partially release after the brake has been applied. If this happens, the brake may not hold the car motionless. Dealers will inspect some 21,000 vehicles and will replace any parking brake assemblies that do not meet specifications.
 The cars involved are 1991 Buick Park Avenue and Ultra models as well as Oldsmobile 98 Elite and Touring Sedans. Also included in the inspection are 1992 Buick Le Sabre and Pontiac Bonnevilles, and Oldsmobile 88 Royale models.
 Customers who have questions about either condition may contact Chevrolet Customer Assistance at 1-800-222-1020, Pontiac at 1-800-762-2737, Buick at 1-800-521-7300, and Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537. All are toll-free numbers.
