GM recalling 100,000 crossovers to fix seat belts

WASHINGTON – General Motors Co. is recalling about 100,000 crossover vehicles to fix seat belts that could fail in a crash.

GM said Friday in a posting with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that the recall involves 2011 model-year versions of the Cadillac SRX, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain. The automaker said the seat belt buckle anchor for the driver and front passenger seats could break apart in a crash.

GM spokesman Alan Adler said there have been no crashes or injuries reported.

GM said it discovered the problem during testing in September. Dealers will modify the seat belt buckles free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin in mid-January.

Owners can contact Cadillac at (866) 982-2339, Chevrolet at (800) 630-2438 and GMC at (866) 996-9463. They can also consult the GM owner center website at www.gmownercenter.com.
