GM Seatbelt Recall

DETROIT, MICHIGAN – Last month, General Motors issued a recall of 2009 and 2010 Chevy Traverse, Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook crossover vehicles due to a defect in the trim on the second-row seats. GM has noticed in returned warranty vehicles that the trim can damage the buckle of the second-row seatbelt and may even press on the red release button, creating a risk of seatbelt failure in the event of an auto accident.

Seatbelts are such a critical safety feature of any vehicle that any potential seatbelt defects should be taken very seriously by owners of the recalled vehicles. If a defective seatbelt fails, it could lead to serious vehicle accident injuries and possibly car crash fatalities.

So far, no defective vehicle injuries are known to have happened as a result of the defective GM seatbelts. However, GM went ahead with the voluntary defective seatbelt recall in order to prevent any potential car accident injuries that might result from the defective product. If any defective seatbelt injuries do occur, the defective product liability attorneys of The Cochran Firm will be ready to defend the rights of any defective vehicle injury victims nationwide.

GM will notify owners of the affected crossover vehicles and give them instructions to take the defective vehicle to a GM dealership for repairs to correct the defective seatbelt issue.

If you or a loved one has been injured because of a defective seatbelt, please contact the experienced defective vehicle injury lawyers of The Cochran Firm today for a complimentary case evaluation.
