Buick Regal Vehicles Recalled Due to Seat Belt Defect
Approximately 8,700 vehicles are affected
General Motors (GM) is recalling approximately 8,700 model year 2018 Buick Regal vehicles.
What's the problem?
During the manufacturing process, the rear seat belts on the affected vehicles may have been improperly routed around the bolster bracket on the rear outboard seats, which can cause inadequate restraint of passengers in the rear seats.
This condition increases the likelihood of passenger injury during a crash.
What happens next?
GM will notify owners of the recalled Buick Regal vehicles beginning in early June 2018. Local dealers will then inspect the rear outboard seat belts, correcting the routing of the seat belts as necessary, free of charge.
For more information, contact Buick customer service by calling toll-free (800) 521-7300.
The reference number for this recall is 18117.
