General Motors recalls nearly 670K small SUVs over car seat safety issue
The recall covers certain 2020 to 2023 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain SUVs
General Motors is recalling more than 668,000 small SUVs in the U.S. over concerns about faulty child seat anchors.
Documents posted on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration say the rear-seat lower anchor bars may have had too much powder coating. Such an issue could make them too thick and prevent a child seat from being installed.
The recall covers certain 2020 to 2023 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain SUVs. GM says no crashes or injuries have been reported.
The automaker is asking owners to install child seats using the seat belts until the latches are repaired. Dealers will inspect the anchors and replace the finish if necessary.
