DETROIT (Reuters) – General Motors Co. is recalling about 111,000 Chevy Equinox, GMC Terrain and Cadillac SRX 2011 small SUV models because the anchor to the seatbelt buckle may fail, which could lead to injury in a crash.
The 2011 model-year vehicles were delivered in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Dealers will start notifying owners of the vehicles involved in January, GM said. GM will pay for the work done by dealers.
The buckles were supplied by Autoliv Inc. Hyojin of Korea made the buckles and supplied them to Autoliv, GM said.
GM spokesman Alan Adler said there are no replacement parts involved in the repair to be performed by dealers. The issue came in the assembly of the parts, he said.
Of the 111,136 vehicles recalled, GM said, 67,805 are Equinox models, 29,926 are Terrain models, and 13,405 are SRX models.
In November, GM recalled nearly 200,000 compact pickup trucks due to missing child seat anchors. The two recalls are not related, Adler said.
