US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 01V264
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 248,737


Summary:
Certain MY 1997-2001 Chevrolet Venture, Pontiac Montana/Transport, and Oldsmobile Silhouette minivans equipped with passenger side power sliding doors that were serviced in NHTSA Recall 01V-067 (GM Campaign 01013) from April to August 2001, and also 2001 Chevrolet Venture, Pontiac Montana, and Oldsmobile Silhouette mini vans equipped with passenger side power sliding doors assembled in January through April 2001, have inadequate front welds. If a front weld fails, the actuator can jam in the unlatched position and, when the sliding door closes, it will not be latched. If this happens, the power sliding door can open while the vehicle is in motion, particularly when the vehicle ascends a hill, makes a turn, or travels over a rough road surface. An unrestrained occupant could fall out of the van and be injured.

Remedy:
Dealers will inspect the actuators for certain date codes and, if necessary, replace the actuators. GM has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this campaign. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020, Pontiac at 1-800-762-2737, or Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537.

Models Involved:
Venture, Transport, Montana, Silhouette
