General Motors is recalling about 1.3 million vehicles, model year 2009-2014 Buick Enclaves manufactured April 14, 2008, through May 14, 2014; Chevrolet Traverse vehicles manufactured June 6, 2008, through May 14, 2014; and GMC Acadia vehicles manufactured April 9, 2008, through May 14, 2014; and 2009-2010 Saturn Outlook vehicles manufactured April 14, 2008, through March 18, 2010.
In these vehicles, the flexible steel cable that connects the seatbelt to the front seat may wear out and separate over time, General Motors said.
If the steel cable becomes worn out and separates, the seatbelt may not properly restrain the person sitting in the seat, increasing the risk of an injury in a crash.
General Motors will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, repair and replace the device that regulates the tension in the lap belt, free of charge. The manufacturer will provide a notification schedule.
Owners can contact General Motors at 800-222-1020 for Chevrolet, 800-521-7300 for Buick, 800-462-8782 for GMC, and at 800-553-6000 for Saturn. General Motors recall number for this recall is 14187.
