To fix potentially dangerous third-row seatbelt mounts that were improperly riveted, General Motors is recalling certain models of its redesigned full-size SUVs. A total of 484,155 vehicles, including the Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV from 2021 and 2022, the Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe from 2021 and 2022, and the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL from 2021 and 2022, make up the population.
It is possible that operators at the supplier’s manufacturing plant did not properly follow manufacturing processes and missed the rivet forming operation, GM said in its defect report to NHTSA. “The left or right third-row seatbelt buckle assembly may have been manufactured with a poorly formed rivet that secures the buckle to the mounting bracket. Accidental injury rates can be increased if the third-row seatbelt assembly does not properly restrain passengers.”
The solution, fortunately, is not complicated. General Motors service technicians will check the rivet quality of the rear seatbelt buckle assemblies and replace the assembly if necessary. Notifications have been sent to dealers, so owners should start receiving them sometime in September.
