General Motors is recalling certain units of the 2016 Cadillac CT6 over an issue that could cause the passenger-side seat belt to detach from the seat anchor.
Owners are advised not to allow an occupant to sit in the front passenger seat until the recall remedy has been performed.
The defect: the bolt that connects the front passenger seat belt webbing to the seat’s anchor plate may be missing. Without the bolt, the seat belt webbing may detach from the seat anchor.
The hazards: if the seat belt webbing detaches from the seat anchor, the seat belt may not properly restrain the front seat passenger in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Affected vehicles: 2016 Cadillac CT6 manufactured July 21, 2016, to July 22, 2016.
Number of vehicles affected: 131 vehicles (United States figure).
The fix: GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the existing front passenger seat belt webbing anchor bolt, or install a bolt if it is missing, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 24, 2016.
