General Motors’ ongoing recalls have affected vehicles all over the globe, not just in North America. The latest safety measure being taken is for an issue with Theta-based Captiva SUVs in Thailand. The recall comes soon after the company recalled 2,000 Chevrolet Spin mini SUVs for faulty fuel tank ventilation nipples and a faulty fuse box seal in the country.
The problem: The cars may be equipped with a seatbelt assembly that was not tightened enough during the manufacturing process.
Vehicles affected: 2011-2014 Chevrolet Captiva SUVs.
Number of vehicles being recalled: 23,532 Captivas in Thailand are affected.
The fix: This recall won’t cost Chevrolet any money in parts, as the bolts on the seatbelt assembly simply need to be inspected and tightened if they are found to be too loose. Dealers will contact owners notifying them of the recall. Chevrolet says the fix will only take a few minutes and will be completed free of charge.
