GM Recalls 243,000 Crossovers over Seatbelt issue

2010 Chevrolet Traverse

If you’re an owner of a 2009-2010 GM-built 3-row crossover, including the Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook, expect a recall letter in the mail.  GM has announced a recall of the 2nd row seatbelt, after several complaints of the seatbelt not functioning properly after the seat is folded flat and then returned to its upright position.

GM hasn’t had any complaints of injuries during crashes because of this issue, but believes it could cause a problem, hence the recall.  The defect can trick passengers into thinking the seatbelt is latched when in fact it isn’t.  This defect also causes “cosmetic damage” to the seatbelt latch and seat side trim cover, as well as making it harder to return the 2nd row seat to its upright position.
