RepairPal Expert Overview on November 8, 2002

There are two potential areas on the second row seats where a person's finger(s) may be pinched when the head restraints are folded rearward and the seat back is folded down. The two areas on each seat could trap and pinch the finger(s) causing injury.

This could be considered a medium priority recall; this would change to high if the rear seats are going to be folded down. Please contact your GM 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.
