Some drivers hoping to escape a General Motors (GM) recall might be disappointed to hear that the company is recalling another 400,000 vehicles including certain Buicks, Cadillacs, Chevys and GMCs.

The bolt that secures the driver's and passenger's power front seat height adjuster on the affected vehicles may fall out causing the seat to suddenly drop to the lowest position. The unexpected descent could cause the driver to lose control of the car and result in an accident.

The following GM models are impacted by this recall: model year 2011-2012 BUICK LACROSSE, 2011-2012 BUICK REGAL, 2010-2012 CADILLAC SRX, 2011-2012 CHEVROLET CAMARO, 2010-2012 CHEVROLET EQUINOX, and 2010-2012 GMC TERRAIN vehicles.

GM has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this recall, but dealers will be required to replace the height adjuster shoulder bolts, free of charge.

For more information, owners should contact GM customer service toll-free at 800-521-7300 (for Buick), 800-458-8006 (for Cadillac), 800-222-1020 (for Chevrolet), or 800-462-8782 (for GMC). GM's reference number for this recall is 14271.
