General Motors Recalls SUVs Because Seat Belts May Become Damaged
Nearly 95,000 Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC full-sized SUVs have problems with third-row seat belts
Vehicles recalled: 2021 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL models built before Nov. 18, 2020.
The problem: The outboard seat belts for the third-row seats may have been entrapped or misrouted behind the outboard seat-folding mechanism during assembly.
The fix: Dealerships will inspect the third-row outboard seat belts, replace damaged belts, and reroute them if necessary, free of charge.
How to contact the manufacturers: Cadillac customer service can be reached at 800-458-8006, Chevrolet at 800-222-1020, and GMC at 800-462-8782.
NHTSA campaign number: 21V-190. GM’s reference number for this recall is N202313000.
Check to see whether your vehicle has an open recall: NHTSA’s website will tell you whether your vehicle has any recalls that need to be addressed.
If you plug your car’s 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN) into NHTSA’s website and a recall doesn’t appear, it means your vehicle doesn’t currently have one. Because automakers issue recalls often, and for many older vehicles, we recommend checking back regularly.
