The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for the 2021 Chevy Tahoe, Suburban and GMC Yukon over an issue related to the front seat bolts in the SUVs.
The problem: vehicles affected by this recall campaign had to undergo a minor repair during the general assembly process that required workers to remove the driver and front passenger seats. The attachment bolts for the front seats may not have been properly reinstalled after the repair was completed and as such, the front seats may now be loose.
The hazards: if an occupied front seat has loose or missing seat bolts, it may move during a crash. This can increase the risk of injury to the seated occupant.
The fix: dealers will inspect the front seat attachment bolts for both front seats in affected vehicles. If necessary, dealers will tighten the bolts or install new attachment bolts as needed. These repairs will be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner.
Number of affected vehicles: a total of 94 vehicles involved in this recall campaign.
Affected components: front seat attachment bolts.
Owners should: GM will notify owners of affected 2021 Chevy Tahoe, Chevy Suburban and GMC Yukon vehicles and instruct them to make an appointment with their dealer.
