GM ANNOUNCES SAFETY RECALLS

 GM ANNOUNCES SAFETY RECALLS
 DETROIT, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- General Motors (NYSE: GM) said


today it is conducting three recalls to replace or correct certain safety related conditions on several different models of passenger cars and trucks.
 Owners are being notified by mail and dealers will make all necessary replacements and repairs at no charge.
 The first recall involves about 9,500 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme and Ciera, Buick Regal and Century, Pontiac Grand Prix and Chevrolet Lumina passenger cars equipped with automatic transmissions. A binding condition may result from an incorrect machining operation. This could cause the transmission to engage when the shift lever is in neutral. Dealers will inspect the transmissions in all of these vehicles and replace them at no charge to owners if they exhibit this problem. Only a small number of vehicles are expected to have the condition.
 The second recall involves some 186,000 1985-86 Chevrolet and GMC one-ton C-30 pickup trucks and G-30 vans. The left-hand lower control arm may crack at the rear flange due to improper machining at the source. The crack could spread to the ball joint mounting. If this happens, the control arm may separate from the ball joint resulting in a loss of steering control. Dealers will install a reinforcement bracket on the left-hand lower control arm to correct the condition.
 The third recall involves about 19,000 1989 Chevrolet Corsica sedans equipped with optional styled steel wheels. Cracks may develop at the outer edges of the wheel spokes near the rim because the wheels were not manufactured according to specifications. The cracks may expand toward each other causing the spokes to separate from the rim. Steering and braking control could be affected as a result. Chevrolet dealers will replace the styled wheels at no charge.
 No deaths or injuries have been reported as a result of these conditions.
 Customers who have questions may contact Chevrolet Customer Assistance at 1-800-222-1020, Pontiac at 1-800-762-2737, Buick at 1-800-521-7300, Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537, and GMC at 313-253-7272.
