The problem occurred when the third-row seats were installed. GM says the third-row outboard seat belts may have been entrapped or misrouted behind the seat-folding mechanisms which can damage the seat belts.
General Motors says a damaged seat belt can break in a crash and greatly increase the chance of injuries or death to the occupant.
Vehicle owners may notice damage to the third-row seat belts or occupants may have trouble latching the belts.
General Motors says about 3,000 of the recalled vehicles are in Canada.
GM dealers will inspect the third-row outboard seat belts and replace any damaged seat belts once the recall begins May 3, 2021.
GM owners with questions should call Chevrolet customer service at 800-222-1020, GMC at 800-462-8782 or Cadillac customer service at 800-458-8006.
Owners should use recall reference number N202313000.
