Exclamation GM orders big recall

General Motors says it's recalling 111,136 2011 Cheverolet Equinox, GMC Terrain and Cadillac SRX crossovers because of seat belt anchors that could fail in a crash.
Some of the crossover vehicles were produced with a seat belt buckle anchor that was cracked, according to GM.
It could contribute to a fracture if the buckle is rotated in a certain way and suddenly is subject to the huge strain of a crash.
If the buckle anchor separates, the seat belt system will noonger restrain the passenger, increasing the potential for injury.
GM says customers will be notified on or before Jan. 18 to bring their vehicles in for dealers to rework the seat belt.

(This article is out of the USA Today. I did NOT write it.)

Just thought i would post this so that all C5ers and their families could be aware and safe!

Have a safe and happy holiday!

All carmakers have recalls, it's the ones who act responsibly (or irresponsibly) that makes the difference.

Can't just sit in the Camaro corner and pretend that's all that exists.

My appologizes if i offened anyone by posting this, non Camaro specific info, i felt that some people on this forum who may not drive their Camaro year round may drive one of the above stated. Just wanted to make everyone aware that hadnt heard it yet, because it wasnt old news to me and i thought that there may be others who had yet to hear it. Just trying to make sure all my fellow C5ers were safe. Again sorry that this wasnt Camaro specific info.

Have a safe and happy holiday.

Thank you for your post. I'm helping my mom research the SRX and thought I'd look around here for some info. New news to me too, and I thank you. I don't understand why people have to make others think twice about an informative post. It takes less effort to move on than to try to make someone feel bad.

Happy holidays to you too.

I don't really understand why this was merged with the other recall thread when they are totally unrelated.

Glad I found it anyhow. Thanks!
