WASHINGTON – General Motors is recalling 2,633 2016 Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave SUVs because they have a third-row left lower seat frame that may have incorrect welds, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
“If the seat frame is not welded in the correct places, the seat may not perform as intended, and in the event of a crash, the seat occupant could be at an increased risk of injury,” NHTSA said in its recall summary.
GM spokesman Tom Wilkinson told Edmunds there are no injuries or accidents linked to the recall.
The affected SUVs were built from November 6, 2015 to November 12, 2015.
Chevrolet, GMC and Buick dealers will inspect the affected seat frame, replacing it as necessary. A date has not been set for the recall.
Owners can contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782 or Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300.
Edmunds says: GM told federal safety regulators that customer letters will go out in the near future. If you own one of these SUVs, be prepared to make a service appointment with your dealer soon.
