GM is recalling certain 2012 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon vehicles because the electrical connector terminals on the driver's seat belt buckle may not fit snugly with the connector pins, causing a bad connection, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The result may lead to a missed visual or audible warning that the seat belt is not fastened, increasing the risk of injury during a crash. The vehicles affected in the recall were built between Sept. 9 and Oct. 19.
GM will notify owners and dealers to replace the seat belt buckle electrical connector terminals free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or before Nov. 30. Owners can contact Chevrolet at 800-630-2438 or GMC at 888-996-9463 for more details. Owners can contact NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.
