Front passenger side seatbelt, it locks up but will not unlock unless you unbuckle it. It has to be unlocked and brought all the way back before it will unlock. I have had it replaced at least three times and it still does not work correctly.

Received recall notice 00V228003 in mail, and took vehicle to dealership. Repairs not done due to no appointment. Made an appointment, and came back on that date.
