US Agency Probes Effectiveness of Recall

May 31, 2019—The U.S. government’s highway safety agency is investigating whether a 5-year-old General Motors seat belt recall thoroughly fixed the problem, reported The Detroit Free Press.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in documents posted on its website Thursday that it has four complaints that seat belts failed in the SUVs after recall repairs were done. No injuries were reported.

The recall covered about 1.4 million Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook SUVs from the 2009-14 model years. GM originally did the recall because a flexible steel cable connecting the front seat belts to the vehicle could separate. If that happens, it may not restrain a person in a crash.
