SUBJECT: Second and Third Row Safety Belt Buckle Rivet Missing – Inspect
MODELS: 2009 Buick Enclave
2009 Chevrolet Traverse
2009 GMC Acadia
2009 Saturn OUTLOOK
It is estimated that less than 250 buckles world-wide will require replacement. Do NOT
order parts until the inspection determines the buckle requires replacement.
General Motors has decided that certain 2009 model year Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse,
GMC Acadia, and Saturn OUTLOOK vehicles fail to conform to Federal/Canada Motor Vehicle
Safety Standard 209, Seat Belt Assemblies. These vehicles may have been built with a safety
belt buckle in the second or third row that is missing a rivet. In a vehicle crash, if the rivet is
missing, the buckle may separate from the bracket. If this were to occur, the occupant would
no longer be properly restrained, increasing the risk of injury.
Dealers/retailers are to inspect the safety belt buckles in the second and third rows, and
replace them if necessary.
