Default 2001 L200 series timing chain recall

I saw in previous posts that the GM recall only effected certain vin#'s. I am considering a 2001 L200, so I ran a Carfax on the vin# (1G8JU52F91Y580675). The report didn't indicate any recall, although I have seen press releases that verified GM shared vin #'s with Carfax during the recalls.

Would anyone on the list have the vin# range of cars effected? I don't feel confident about my Carfax report. Also, did anyone with an L200 OUTSIDE of the effected vin# range have their timing chain snap?

Thank you for your help with this!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Thank you Partymmudasti.

Guess I'll pass on the L200 I was looking at. The Carfax doesn't indicate any timing chain repair, and the current owner doesn't know anything about it.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
