Recalls

US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 05V127000
Mfg's Report Date: 03/29/2005
Component: SEAT BELTS:FRONT:ANCHORAGE
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 2536


Summary:
CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 225, "CHILD RESTRAINT ANCHORAGE SYSTEMS" THE REQUIREMENTS FOR LOCATION AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROPERLY ATTACHING CHILD RESTRAINTS. THE OWNER MANUAL IN THESE VEHICLES INDICATE THE INCORRECT SEAT LOCATIONS WITH UPPER AND LOWER TETHER ANCHORS, AND PROVIDE INCORRECT INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE TOP TETHER ANCHORAGE.

Consequence:
IMPROPER USE OF CHILD RESTRAINT ANCHORAGE COULD RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY TO THE SEAT OCCUPANT.

Remedy:
DEALERS WILL MAIL AN OWNERS MANUAL UPDATE THAT DESCRIBES THE LOCATION AND PROPER USE OF THE TETHER ANCHORS. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON APRIL 15, 2005. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT GMC AT 1-866-996-9463.

US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 05V163000
Mfg's Report Date: 04/22/2005
Component: SEAT BELTS:REAR
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 1359824


Summary:
ON CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS AND SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, THE 2ND ROW CENTER OCCUPANT SEAT BELT ROUTING MAY MAKE IF DIFFICULT TO POSITION THE LAP PORTION OF THE SAFETY BELT LOW AROUND THE HIPS OF OCCUPANTS, ESPECIALLY SMALLER OCCUPANTS, SEATED IN THIS POSITION. APPROPRIATE USE OF A CHILD SEAT OR BOOSTER SEAT, AS RECOMMENDED FOR SMALL CHILDREN, DOES IMPROVE THE FIT CONDITION FOR THIS USER GROUP. IN ADDITION TO INSTRUCTIONS ON PROPER INFANT AND YOUNG CHILD RESTRAINT (WITH CHILD SEATS OR BOOSTERS), SPECIAL VERBIAGE FOR RESTRAINING OLDER CHILD IS INCLUDED IN THE OWNER'S MANUAL. ALSO, THE SUGGESTED SEAT BELT FIT/ROUTING FOR ADULTS, IRRESPECTIVE OF SEATING POSITION, IS DESCRIBED ION THE OWNER'S MANUAL TEST.

Consequence:
A LAP PORTION OF THE SEAT BELT ROUTING THAT IS NOT LOW AND SNUG ON THE HIPS CAN ALLOW UNFAVORABLE OCCUPANT KINEMATICS IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH, ESPECIALLY A FRONTAL COLLISION. MOREOVER, THE HIGHER ROUTING ALLOWS THE LAP BELT TO RIDE UP ON AN OCCUPANT'S ABDOMEN INSTEAD OF FITTING LOW AROUND THEIR HIPBONES, AND THEREFORE, CAN EXPOSE THEM TO MORE RISK OF ABDOMINAL AND INTERNAL ORGAN INJURY.

Remedy:
DEALERS WILL CUT OPEN THE GUIDE LOOP, REMOVE A PORTION OF THE LOOP, AND THEN THE REMAINING TWO SIDES SHOULD BE FOLDED OVER AND SECURED WITH A RETAINER. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED AN OWNER NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT CADILLAC AT 1-866-982-2339, CHEVROLET AT 1-800-630-2438, GMC AT 1-866-996-9463, OR HUMMER AT
