Among the 23 recalls the NHTSA has announced this February comes news of the following:
General Motors LLC (“GM”) has recalled certain 2016-2017 Chevrolet Cruze vehicles. A bracket used in the driver or front passenger seat-back recliner mechanism may have been incorrectly welded to the seat-back frame, as a result, in the event of a crash, the head-restraints may not function properly. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 202a, “Head Restraints.”
According to the NHTSA, in a crash, the seat-backs for the front seats may break, increasing the risk of injury to the occupants.
