GM Recalls 1997 Blazer, Jimmy, BravadaApr 2, 2003 | AP
General Motors Corp. recalled 341,000 sport utility vehicles Wednesday to replace a driver seat belt buckle assembly.
The recall covers model year 1997 Chevrolet Blazer, GMC Jimmy and Oldsmobile Bravada SUVs. Some 313,000 are in the United States and another 19,000 are in Canada.
The buckle design includes an "energy-absorbing" loop with stitching that expands too much in certain rollover accidents, reducing driver restraint, a company spokesman said.
