GM Announces Recall of Cadillac DeVilles

Posted on September 11, 2002 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

DETROIT - General Motors announced a voluntary recall of approximately 280,000 of its model year 2000-02 Cadillac DeVille passenger cars Tuesday.

The manufacturer explained that during internal testing, it discovered that some vehicles had seat belt pretensioners, in the front driver and passenger seats that did not perform properly. According to the company, this means that there is a possibility that the retractors may not remain locked up when the pretensioner is activated in moderate to severe crashes.

Pretensioners help the safety belts reduce a person's forward movement in a moderate to severe frontal crash.

GM explained that there have been no reports of crashes or injuries related to this condition. And only DeVilles built between May 1999 and May 2002 are affected by this condition.

GM is asking owners of these vehicles to bring them in to their local Cadillac dealers for repair. These repairs will be performed at no cost to the customers.
