The first problem is that the second row, middle seat belt gets stuck after putting the row down flat. You have to put the row up and down a few times for it to start working. Sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't. I read about recalls on the model of my vehicle and this issue is listed as one of the recalls. Chevrolet and GM insist that my "VIN#" is not listed under the recalls, so it has to be diagnosed and dealt with as a normal problem. This is listed as a safety hazard with the recall because it may not restrain as it should, god forbid, during an accident. The second problem is there is a leak in the cargo hold. Whenever it rains, (a little or a lot, it doesn't matter) water pools in the cargo hold. This is a safety hazard because now the vehicle smells of mold. There are many other problems as well. There is a problem with one of the tire sensors, the car shakes and the check engine light is on.
