DETROIT (AP) — General Motors Corp. said Friday it is recalling about 10,000 Chevrolet and GMC full-sized trucks to repair a problem with the seat-belt retractor.

The vehicles involved are 2001 model year Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra full-size extended-cab pickup trucks and Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban and GMC Yukon, Yukon Denali, Yukon XL, and Yukon XL Denali full-sized sport-utility vehicles built between Sept. 27 and Oct. 3.

According to GM, a component in the seat-belt retractor in the second- and third-row seats may fracture. That could prevent the safety belt retractor from locking or securing a child seat in a crash.

There have been no reports of accidents or injuries related to the problem, GM said.

Notices were sent to affected owners Tuesday, GM spokesman Mike Morrissey said.

He said owners seeking more information should call their local dealers or the GM customer assistance center.

For more information, Chevrolet owners can reach the GM Customer Assistance Center at 1-800-222-1020. GMC owners should call 1-800-GMCTRUCK.
