SUVs from General Motors (GM) are now subject to a recall due to potentially unsafe seats.

The vehicles being recalled by the auto manufacturer are certain model year 2016 Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Buick Enclaves. The affected vehicles have a third row lower seat frame that may have welds that are not in the correction location.

If the seat frame is not welded in the correct places, the seat may not perform as intended, and in the event of a crash, the seat occupant could be at an increased risk of injury.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the third row lower seat frame, replacing it as necessary, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020, GMC customer service at (800) 462-8782, and Buick customer service at (800) 521-7300.
