Recall 16V590000

Seats In First And Second Row May Not Be Securely Fastened

Recall Details

The fasteners securing the first and second rows of seats in the vehicle may not be tightened securely. Dealers will replace the seats or seat sets free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The seats in the first and second rows of the vehicle may not be securely fastened to the vehicle's body. This would allow the seats to move and could increase risk of injury in an accident.
