General Motors 2014 Seat Belt Recall Investigation
Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of for owners of 2009-10 Saturn Outlooks and 2009-14 GMC Acadias, Buick Enclaves and Chevrolet Traverses that had their vehicles inspected and repaired pursuant to a seat belt recall by General Motors LLC (“GM”) in 2014. GM issued the recall because the flexible steel cable connecting the front seat belts to seat mounted pretensioners could fatigue and separate, and the separated cable could increase the risk of injury to vehicle occupants in a crash. Pursuant to the recall, GM would inspect the cables and replace the pretensioners as needed, at no cost to owners. On May 28, 2019, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”) announced the opening an investigation to assess the effectiveness of the GM recall following receipt of owner complaints reporting cable separations after repairs were made.
If the seat belt pretensioners in your 2009-10 Saturn Outlook, 2009-14 GMC Acadia, Buick Enclave or Chevrolet Traverses were inspected, repaired or replaced in connection with GM’s 2014 recall and you have any questions or feel you have a case because a cable separation occurred after the recall remedy was implemented, please contact Wolf Haldenstein by telephone at (800) 575-0735, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by filing out the below form.
