Cadillac’s parent company, General Motors, has issued recalls for certain units of the 2021 to 2022 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV to address issues with third-row seat belts.
Problem: the rivets that secure the buckles to the mounting brackets in the left or right third-row seat belt assemblies may not form properly in the affected Escalade unit.
Danger: seat belts with deformed rivets may not hold the passenger properly, increasing the risk of injury in the event of an accident.
The fix: a Cadillac dealer will inspect the rivet head formation on the left and right side seat belt assemblies. If a damaged rivet is found, the seat belt buckle assembly will be replaced. This procedure will be carried out at no cost to the vehicle owner.
Affected components: third row seat belt buckle assembly.
