Holden is recalling 42,000 Commodores for a possible fault with the front seatbelts. Holden issued the recall yesterday after a bulletin was issued last week telling dealers to put sales on hold. Since America’s Chevrolet SS is based on the same vehicle, is the Bow Tie affected as well?
Holden says an electrical short that can disable the seatbelt pre-tensioner mechanism in a crash if the pre-tensioner module makes make contact with the seatbelt buckle assembly under the seat.
“The investigation began following an isolated report received from the [production line],” says Holden. Other airbags and safety systems are unaffected.
But no word on the Chevy. When more information comes in, GM Authority will bring you the news as it happens.
