Among the 55 NHTSA has announced this October comes news of the following:

General Motors LLC (“GM”) has recalled an estimated 15,800 model year 2018-2019 Cadillac CT6, Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Suburban, Volt and GMC Yukon XL vehicles. Certain second-row or third-row rear seatbelts retractor assemblies may not automatically lock when the seatbelt is fully pulled out of the retractor, possibly preventing a child seat from being properly secured. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 208, “Occupant Crash Protection.”

According to the NHTSA, if the child seat is not properly secured in the event of a crash, it can increase the risk of injury.

GM will notify registered owners, and dealers will inspect the rear seatbelt retractors and replace them if necessary, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM’s number for this recall is 18315.
