Recall 17V542000

Second Row Left Outboard Seat Belt May Become Unlatched

Recall Details

In certain passenger seating and vehicle situations, the second-row center seating position seat belt buckle could cause the left outboard seat belt to become unlatched. Dealers will install a shorter second row seat belt buckle free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The second row left outboard seat belt may become unlatched due to a conflict with the second row center position seat belt buckle. This would increase risk of occupant injury.
