2009 Chevrolet Traverse SEAT BELTS NHTSA Campaign #10V375000
Summary: General Motors is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Chevrolet Traverse, Buick enclave, GMC acadia, and Saturn outlook vehicles. The second row seat side trim shield restricts the upward rotation of the safety belt buckle when the seat back is returned to a seating position after being folded flat. If the buckle contacts the seat frame, additional effort is required to return the seat to a seating position. If sufficient force is applied, the buckle cover could be pushed down the strap, exposing and partially depressing the red release button.
Consequence: The safety belt may not restrain the occupant as intended during a crash, increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupant.
Actions: Dealers will modify the second row seat side trim shields. If a safety belt buckle is damaged, dealers will replace it free of charge. The safety recall began on August 18, 2010. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, Buick at 1-866-608-8080, GMC at 1-866-996-9463, and Saturn at 1-800-972-8876, or at the owner center at www.gmownercenter.com.
