    Default 2008-2009 G8 and 2011-2013 Caprice - Seat Belt recall

    Hey, apparently we have another recall.

    2009 Pontiac G8 SEAT BELTSNHTSA Campaign #15V399000
    Date Announced:JUNE 23, 2015
    Vehicles Affected:47,042

    Summary: General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2011-2013 Chevrolet Caprice vehicles manufactured October 15, 2010, to October 22, 2013, and 2008-2009 Pontiac G8 vehicles manufactured July 25, 2007, to February 18, 2009. In the affected vehicles, the flexible steel cables that connect the seat belts to the vehicle at the outside of the driver seat and the front passenger seat may be bent from being sat on while entering the vehicle. This repeated bending may result in the cable breaking.

    Consequence: If the cable breaks, the seat occupant may not be properly restrained in the event of a crash, increasing their risk of injury.

    Actions: GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the seat belt tensioner assembly which includes the steel cable, free of charge. These replacement parts reposition the tensioner cable out of the path of entry into the vehicle and uses a more flexible cable, set at a more upright angle. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020 or Pontiac customer service at 1-800-762-2737. GM's number for this recall is 15206. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #15V399000

    Thought the same thing Len ..trying to avoid the ignition BS. The dealer did say you can sign a paper saying you refuse the ignition recall.

    You can wave the key recall. I did when they asked me. They didn't try and make me do anything if that's what your worried about.

    Looks like the answer to my question I just asked in the key recall thread is here.. I'll have to remember to decline if I ever take the G8 into the Dealer again.
