2011 Chevrolet Equinox RecallsIgnition Key May Be Removed Without Transmission Lever Shifted To Park
The ignition key may be able to be removed from the ignition switch without having the transmission shift lever securely in the park position. This could allow the vehicle to roll unexpectedly. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the key cylinder lock housing free of charge to resolve the concern.
The driver's and/or passenger's seat may suddenly drop to its lowest position because a bolt securing the height adjuster can fall out. This unexpected movement of the driver's seat could cause a distraction, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the height adjuster bolts in both front seats to correct this concern.
General Motors is recalling certain 2011 Cadillac SRX, Chevrolet Equinox, and GMC Terrain vehicles because one or both of the front safety belt buckle anchors may separate during a crash. As a result, the safety belt system may not properly restrain the front seat occupants, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will modify the affected safety belt buckles as necessary.
