Vehicles Affected: Approximately 15,800 model-year 2018-19 Cadillac CT6 sedans and Escalade ESV SUVs, Chevrolet Suburban SUVs and Volt hybrids, and GMC Yukon XL SUVs
The Problem: Certain second-row or third-row rear seat belt retractor assemblies may not automatically lock when the seat belt is fully pulled out of the retractor, possibly preventing a child seat from being properly secured, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the rear seat belt retractors and replace them, if necessary, for free.
