problem #1

Jun 252014


  • 30,000 miles
The contact owns a 2009 GMC Acadia. While her child was seated in the rear passenger seat, the contact could not unlatch the rear seat belt restraint. After many failed attempts, the seat belt began to tighten across the child causing him to become pressed up against the seat and unable to move his chest. The child began to lose oxygen, which prompted the contact to cut the seat belt from the child. The contact received a recall notice for NHTSA campaign number: 14V266000 (seat belts); however, the dealer stated that the failure she experienced was not identical to the one listed in the recall. The manufacturer was notified. The approximate failure mileage was 30,000.
