2014 Caprice PPV recall - defective seat welds

Post by elc32955 » Tue Sep 01, 2015 8:54 am

From the NHTSA website, recall dated 7/23/2014;
Report Receipt Date: JUL 23, 2014
NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V446000
Component(s): SEATS

Manufacturer: General Motors LLC

SUMMARY:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Buick Encore and Cadillac ATS; 2014 Cadillac CTS, ELR, Chevrolet Caprice and SS vehicles; and 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Trucks. Due to an incomplete weld on the seat hook bracket assembly, the front seats in the affected vehicles may not stay secured in place during a high load condition such as a crash.

CONSEQUENCE:
A seat that does not stay secured increases the risk of occupant injury in a vehicle crash.

REMEDY:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the seat hook bracket assembly weld and replace the lower seat track, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on August 15, 2014. Owners may contact GM customer service at 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-458-8006 (Cadillac), 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), and 1-800-462-8782 (GMC). GM's number for this recall is 14340.
