GM recalls nearly 250,000 recent SUVs for potential safety belt issues

| |

General Motors is recalling more than 243,000 model year 2009/2010 crossover sport utility vehicles, including the Chevy Traverse, Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook, to inspect safety belts for possible damage.

The automaker and regulators said most of the vehicles were shipped within the United States. Several thousand others were exported to Canada, Mexico, China, Saudi Arabia, among other countries.

Potential damage to the second-row safety belts could result in the latch seemingly appear it was secure when it wasn’t.

No accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of the issue. The problem was discovered during warranty returns and sustained damage was cosmetic in most cases.

General Motors will detail dealership repair procedures to owners via letter.
