General Motors has announced that a recall campaign is under way regarding 1997-2001 Chevrolet Venture, Pontiac Trans Sport/Montana, and Oldsmobile Silhouette minivans equipped with the optional passenger-side power sliding door. This recall involves more than 550,000 vans.

“Some of these minivans may have an actuator that could jam in the unlatch position on the power sliding door,” said Jeanne Merchant, assistant vehicle line executive for GM minivans. “This may leave the door in an unlatched state and, under certain operating conditions, it may open.”

Chevrolet, Pontiac, and Oldsmobile dealers will replace the suspect actuator with a new actuator bracket assembly. This repair will be performed at no cost to customers. GM mailed the owner notification letters on April 18. There have been no reports of accidents or injuries related to this condition.
