RepairPal Expert Overview
There is a trim shield on the sides of the second row seat. If the seat is folded flat and is then returned to the upright position, the safety belt buckle could get hung up on that trim shield. This might affect the ability of the seat belt to be buckled, increasing the risk of injury to the occupant.
We at RepairPal have designated this a medium priority recall. Please contact your General Motors dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
When moving the seats from a flat to upright position, the second row seat belt buckle may bind on the second row seat trim shield.
