Recall 17V599000

Passenger Front Seat Belt Anchor Not Securely Welded To The Seat Frame

Recall Details

For vehicles equipped with a manually adjusted front passenger seat, the passenger front seat belt anchor weld may fail at the passenger front seat. Dealers will replace the front passenger manual seat track free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

For vehicles equipped with manually adjusted front passenger seats, the passenger front seat belt anchor may not be welded properly to the passenger front seat frame. This could result in the belt becoming detached, increasing the risk of occupant injury in an accident.
