Big GM Crossovers Recalled for Seat Belt Anchor Cables

June 4, 2014

GM will recall its large crossover vehicles for a problem with the seat belt anchor cable.

In the 2009-2014 Buick Enclave, Chevy Traverse, GMC Acadia, and the former 2009-2010 Saturn Outlook, the flexible steel cable that connects to the seat belt anchor on the outboard seating can fatigue and separate over time as a result of occupant movement in and out of the seat. If the cable is separated and the vehicle is in a crash, the occupant can be injured.

previously paid repairs for the recall condition are to be submitted to dealers no later than June 15, 2015. Customers also can mail a completed Customer Reimbursement Request Form along with all required supporting documentation to the GM Customer Assistance Center.
