Recalls for 1997 Pontiac Trans Sport 2dr Convertible Firebird (CMI)
1997 PONTIAC FIREBIRD
NHTSA Campaign ID: 96V219000
Component: SEAT BELTS:FRONT:RETRACTOR
Manufacturer: GENERAL MOTORS CORP.
Manufacture Dates: 06/01/1996 - 09/30/1996
Potential Units Affected: 1573
Defect Description:
THESE VEHICLES WERE MANUFACTURED WITH SEAT BELT RETRACTORS OUT OF DESIGN POSITION WHICH CAN CAUSE THE RETRACTOR TO LOCK-UP ON SLOPES LESS SEVERE THAN THE FMVSS REQUIREMENT. THIS DOES NOT COMPLY WITH FMVSS NO. 209, "SEAT BELT ASSEMBLIES."
Consequence:
IN THE EVENT OF A VEHICLE COLLISION, UNBELTED OCCUPANTS ARE MORE AT RISK OF INJURY THAN THOSE USING SEAT BELTS.
Action to take:
DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE SEAT BELTS FOR PROPER FRONT SEAT BELT RETRACTOR POSITION. RETRACTORS FOUND TO BE IMPROPERLY POSITIONED WILL BE REINSTALLED CORRECTLY.
