WASHINGTON -- General Motors is recalling more than 800,000 full-sized pickups to replace tailgate support cables that are prone to corrode and possibly break.
The recall affects 1999-2000 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks.
About two years ago the company recalled 3.7 million other trucks from the 2000-04 model years for a similar problem.
GM said moisture collects inside plastic sheathing on the braided steel cables and causes corrosion. More than 50 injuries were reported after cables broke and tailgates fell while people were on them.
