484,000 Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC SUVs recalled for seat belt assemblies | New
GM’s lineup of redesigned full-size SUVs is once again under recall, this time including 2021 and 2022 model year variants of the Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. Faulty rivets on the seat belt assembly are the cause.

More than 484,000 SUVs equipped with third-row seats are affected. The rivet that secures the buckle to the mounting bracket in the left or right third row seat belt buckle assembly may have been improperly formed. Seat belts with deformed rivets may not properly restrain passengers, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect the rivet head formation on both sides of the third row seat belt buckle assemblies and replace them, if necessary, free of charge. Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC’s parent automaker GM will begin notifying owners Sept. 26, but those with further questions can call Cadillac at 800-458-8006, Chevrolet at 800-222-1020, GMC at 800-462-8782 or state route. Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit his website to check their numberplate and find out more.
