Certain 2019 to 2021 model year GM pickups and SUVs have been recalled due to an issue involving the seatbelt on the front center seat.
The problem: on certain 2019-2021 model year GM pickups trucks and SUVs, the front-row center seat of the optional 40/20/40 split-bench seat may have a loose or improperly secured seat belt bracket. This problem can be traced back to the seat supplier, which may have failed to secure the seat belt brackets to the seat frame.
The hazards: if a seat belt bracket is not secured, the seat belt may not properly restrain an occupant in the front row center seat position, increasing the risk of occupant injury in a crash or high-speed braking event. A vehicle with improperly secured seatbelts may also violate certain federal motor vehicle safety standards.
The fix: dealers are instructed to inspect the left-side and right side front row center seat belt bracket attachments and reassemble them if necessary. No repair parts will be required for this recall, as the seat belt bracket only needs to be refastened to the seat. These repairs will be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner.
