Cadillac Recall 00095: GM/FMVSS 209/Seat Belt Assembly
2000 Cadillac DeVille
High release efforts could make it more difficult for a crash victim to release the belt and exit the vehicle.
Seat Belts — Front — Buckle Assembly
- Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles, hearse, and limousines. Some of these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS no. 209, "seat belt assemblies." These vehicles have seat belts that may not meet the 30-pound push button release effort requirement of the standard.
- Dealers will inspect the seat belts and, if necessary, modify the latch plates or replace the retractor. Dealers will also add "snap on" latch clips to eliminate the potential of inverted latch plate insertion. Owner notification is being conducted in phases. The first phase began May 29, 2001, and the second phase began July 6, 2001. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Cadillac at 1-800-458-8006.
