GM Issues Recall On 484K Large SUV’s
If you drive a full-size SUV, year model 2021-2022, contact your dealer to see if your vehicle is part of a new recall issued by General Motors. Tuesday (August 16, 2022) U.S. Department of Transportation (NHTSA) posted details surrounding the automaker recall of more than 484,000 large SUVs in the U.S.
According to safety regulators with the NHTSA, large GM SUVs may have third-row, seat-belt malfunction problems that dealers need to inspect and fix if needed. Transportation officials state rivets holding the buckle to the mounting bracket on the left- and right-side third-row seats may have been installed improperly. This defect has the potential for risk of injury as belts could fail or not properly restrain a passenger in a crash.
GM says they have no knowledge of any accidents or injuries that have been caused by the defect. Vehicles affected by this recall include Chevy Suburbans and Tahoes, Cadillac Escalades, and GMC Yukons models from the years 2021 and 2022. Owners will receive an official recall notification via mail beginning Sept. 26.
