General Motors has announced a recall for a defective seat belt anchor for almost 100,000 2011 Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain, and Cadillac SRXs.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the driver and/or front passenger safety belt buckle anchor on these crossover vehicles may fracture and separate near the seat attachment in a car accident. GM has had this problem before. There are no report of injuries which may well be the case. But it is also unlikely that every broken seat belt anchor is reported to GM, either.
If you own one of these new cars, you can contact Cadillac at 866-982-2339, Chevrolet at 800-630-2438, and GMC at 866-996-9463. You can also deal learn more about the recall, which will begin January 18, 2011, here.
