General Motors is recalling over 2 million vehicles due to seat belt design problems.

About 1.5 million of these vehicles are SUVs and pickup trucks.

GM is just not having good luck these days. Last week, the company announced that it had lost $1.1 billion in the first quarter, and now this.

According to an Associated Press article,

Among the vehicles affected, the company was recalling 1.48 million SUVs and pickups from the 2003-2005 model years, including the Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab, Suburban, Tahoe, Avalanche; Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT, GMC Sierra Crew Cab, Yukon XL, Yukon, and the Hummer H2s.

GM spokesman Alan Adler said the center safety belt in the second row of the SUVs and pickups, typically used for child seats, was riding high on the occupant’s stomach or abdomen. He said there could be a reduced protection in that portion of the body in the event of a crash.

GM also announced five other recalls on various vehicles. A Reuters article goes into the details on those.

Last year, GM had the most recalls out of any manufacturer in the auto industry.
