GM has issued a product recall for certain examples of the 2022 GMC Terrain due to an issue related to the compact crossover’s driver’s seat height-adjust pivot bolt.
The problem: affected vehicles fitted with power driver seats that were not equipped with the memory function may have a stripped or loose bolt at the seat frame height-adjust pivot.
The hazards: if the seat frame height-adjust pivot bolt comes out of the pivot pilot, the seat structure may have reduced ability to restrain the occupant in a crash, thus increasing the risk of injury.
The fix: certified GM technicians will be instructed to inspect the vehicle’s driver seat and replace the seat cushion frame if necessary.
Affected components: seat height-adjust pivot bolt.
Affected vehicles: 2022 GMC Terrain
Number of affected vehicles: GM did not specify how many vehicles are affected by this condition, however it did say that only a small number of vehicles are believed to have a stripped or loose bolt at the seat frame height-adjust pivot.
It’s worth noting that the Terrain’s corporate D2 platform mate, the Chevy Equinox, is also impacted by the same issue.
