Cadillac is calling back a small number of CT6 luxury sedans, which have left the assembly line with a potential seatbelt problem.
In the notification sent to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Cadillac’s parent company, GM, is informing of 131 potentially affected units, which have been manufactured from July 21 to July 22, 2016.
In these cars, “the bolt that secures the front passenger seatbelt webbing to the seat’s ancor plate may be missing“, as the feds write in their description of the defect, and if this happens, then “the seatbelt may not effectively restrain a belted passenger in a crash, which could increase the risk of injury.”
The next step for General Motors will be to inform owners of the aforementioned vehicles of the condition and advise them to schedule an appointment with an authorized dealers, which, in turn, will replace the front passenger seatbelt webbing anchor bolt, or install a bolt if this is missing, free of charge.
Until the affected Cadillac CT6s are repaired, owners are warned not to allow occupants to sit in the front passenger seat. The recall has commenced on September 24.
