General Motors is recalling over 130 model year 2016 Cadillac CT6 vehicles. The bolt that connects the front passenger seat belt webbing to the seat's anchor plate may be missing. Without the bolt, the seatbelt webbing may detach from the seat anchor.

If the seatbelt webbing detaches from the seat anchor, the seatbelt may not properly restrain the front seat passenger in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Owners are advised not to allow an occupant to sit in the front passenger seat until the recall remedy has been performed.

The recall began on September 24, 2016.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the existing front passenger seatbelt webbing anchor bolt, or install a bolt if it is missing, free of charge.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact Cadillac customer service at (800) 458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 16035.
