General Motors is recalling about 425,000 full-size passenger and cargo vans after reports that seat belt buckles will not latch or unlatch.
The recall affects the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana from the 2003 to 2006 model years.
GM discovered the problem through an analysis of warranty claims. Consumers reported problems latching the buckle or unlocking it once it was in place.
A spokesman says there have been no reports of injuries. Dealers will inspect the buckles and replace the upper buckle cover. If the restraint isn't working properly, dealers will replace the entire buckle assembly.
