RECALL Subject : Driver's Seat Belt Tensioner Cable May Separate

Report Receipt Date: JUL 08, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V518000
Component(s): SEAT BELTS
Potential Number of Units Affected: 15,486


Manufacturer: General Motors LLC

SUMMARY:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Chevrolet Caprice Police Pursuit vehicles manufactured May 14, 2013 through June 14, 2016, and Chevrolet SS vehicles manufactured May 14, 2013 through April 27, 2016. The driver's seat belt tensioner cable may be repeatedly bent over the seat side shield as the driver enters and exits the vehicle causing the cable to fatigue and separate.
CONSEQUENCE:
If the tensioner cable separates, the driver may not be properly restrained in the event of a crash, increasing their risk of injury.
REMEDY:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the tensioner cable assembly, replacing any cable that is damaged. For vehicles that do not require a tensioner assembly replacement, a cable guide will be installed. All vehicles will receive new seat trim with a redesigned opening for the cable routing. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 31340.
