REASON FOR THIS SAFETY RECALL

In some of the affected vehicles, the right front seatbelt may have been improperly assembled with the seatbelt webbing only routed through the rubber trim, and not properly routed through the anchor. Improperly assembled seatbelts may not adequately restrain occupants in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

 

SERVICE ACTION

Before demonstrating or delivering any new in-stock vehicles involved in this recall, dealers are to verify the right front seatbelt was assembled properly by performing a pull test and visual inspection. This service must be performed on all affected vehicles at no charge to the vehicle owner.

NOTE: Less than 1% of the affected vehicle population is expected to require seatbelt replacement.

 

OWNER NOTIFICATION AND MAILING SCHEDULE

Owner letters are expected to be mailed the week of July 29, 2019. Dealers should repair any affected vehicles that arrive at their dealerships, whether or not the customer has received a letter.

PLEASE NOTE:

Federal law requires dealers to complete this recall service before a new vehicle is delivered to the buyer or lessee. Violation of this requirement by a dealer could result in a civil penalty of up to $21,000 per vehicle. Correct all vehicles in your new vehicle inventory before delivery.
