General Motors’ recalls aren’t just limited to vehicles it’s sold in North America, it turns out. The automaker’s Shanghai GM Chinese joint venture has announced it is also recalling certain vehicles for defective seats, the same problem which prompted this week’s recall of 414,333 vehicles in the United States.
The problem: The bolt that secures the seat height adjuster actuator in certain vehicles “may become loose or fall out,” GM says. If the bolt falls out, the seat may move up and down or force the seat to descend to the lowest position.
Vehicles affected: This recall include imported Cadillac SRX SUVs and 2011 and newer Chevrolet Camaros, both of which were included in the North American seat recall.
Number of vehicles affected: 19,836
The fix: Shanghai GM will inspect and repair the seats as necessary free of charge.
