General Motors recalled nearly 100,000 SUVs due to seat belts

General Motors and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are conducting a recall campaign in the United States that will affect the three-row versions of the 2021 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, GMC Yukon, Yukon XL, Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe.

According to the ministry, the recall will affect 94,641 cars, in some of which, during the assembly of the third row seat, one or both external seat belts could “get stuck behind the folding mechanism of the side seat.” As a result, they can be damaged and can break in the event of an accident, increasing the risk of injury to third-row passengers.

The safety agency notes that “owners may notice damage or difficulty using the third row seat belt, as well as difficulty securing or controlling third row seats.” Defective parts will be thoroughly inspected by an authorized General Motors dealer who will assess the belts for damage and, if necessary, replace or fix them.

Dealers were informed of the problem two weeks ago, and owner notification is scheduled for May 3rd.
