RepairPal Expert Overview:

On certain vehicles, the center rear seat belt may incorporate a release mechanism that detaches both the lap and shoulder portion at the belt's lower anchor point. This design may not meet federal safety standards. If this seat belt is not properly anchored, it could increase the risk of personal injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the center rear seat belts in vehicles currently in dealer inventory. It has yet to be decided if vehicles already delivered to customers will be recalled.
