problem #3

  • 85,000 miles


Seat belts fail to latch on rear removable passenger seats (7 pass. Option) 3 seats usable out of 5. 2nd row rh outer belt will not release from retractor - it's stuck. Inquired with Chevrolet dealer, sadler motors - S.S.M. mi GM said no recalls issued, or will be issued. I took the latch from the seat 2nd row rh outer seat and put it on the center seat so the retractable belt could be used - giving me 3 safe seats. No help from dealer or GM. We have an unsafe vehicle that is primarily used to Transport children to/from school - now we have to limit the children we can safely Transport.
