Incorrect bolts may have been used to attach seat belts

General Motors is recalling 470 of the following vehicles:

  • Model year 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EVs, and
  • Model year 2021 GMC Canyons and Sierra 1500s, 2500s, 3500s, Yukons, Yukon XLs, Cadillac Escalades, Escalade ESVs, Chevrolet Blazers, Camaros, Colorados, Equinoxs, Silverado 1500s, 2500s, 3500s, Suburbans and Tahoes.

Incorrect bolts may have been used at one or more fastening locations to secure the seat belts to the vehicle. If an incorrect bolt was used, the seat belt may not be properly attached to the vehicle.

If a seat belt assembly is not properly attached to the vehicle, the seat belt may not properly restrain an occupant in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

What to do

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the suspect bolts free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin February 6, 2021.

Owners may contact GMC customer service at (800) 462-8785, Cadillac customer service at (800) 458-8006, or Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020. GM's number for this recall is N202322230.
