General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Chevrolet Express and 2016 GMC Savana cargo and cutaway vans.

The affected vehicles were manufactured without an inside rearview mirror and with a right-hand convex exterior review mirror.

These vehicles are required to have either an inside rearview mirror or both left and right-hand flat exterior rearview mirrors.

Thus, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 111, "Rearview Mirrors."

If the driver does not have a clear unobstructed view to the back of the vehicle, it can increase the risk of a crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will install a right-hand flat rearview mirror, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020 or GMC customer service at (800) 462-8782.

GM's reference number for this recall is 16036.
