GM Recalls 480,000 Large SUV's For Third Seat Belt Assembly Problem
Detroit Aug 16, 2022; General Motors is recalling more than 480,000 vehicles in the U.S. because of a potential issue with seat belts.
The recall is for the 2021 and 2022 Cadillac Escalade/Escalade ESV 2021, Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon/Yukon XL
In documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, GM says one of the seat belts in the third row of the vehicles could malfunction due to a faulty rivet.
"If the third-row seatbelt assembly is not properly riveted, it may not properly restrain occupants in a crash, increasing the risk of injury," GM says.
Customers can contact a dealer to have their vehicle inspected to see if a fix is necessary. GM expects a small percentage of vehicles to fail the inspection.
The service will be free of charge.
