Additional information:

Among the 42 recalls the NHTSA has announced this April comes news of the following:

General Motors LLC (“GM”) has recalled an estimated 8,738 model year 2018 Buick Regal Vehicles. During the manufacturing process, the rear seat belts may have been improperly routed around the bolster bracket on the rear outboard seats, which can cause inadequate restraint of the passengers.

According to the NHTSA, if the seat belt fails to adequately restrain the passengers in a crash, it can increase the risk of injury.

GM will notify registered owners, and dealers will inspect the rear outboard seat belts, correcting the routing of the seat belts as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin June 5, 2018. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300. GM’s number for this recall is 18117.
