NOTE:  This recall applies only to the above vehicles.

NOTE:  Some vehicles above may have been identified as not involved in this recall and therefore have been excluded from this recall.

IMPORTANT:  Some of the involved vehicles may be in dealer new vehicle inventory.  Federal law requires you to complete this recall service on these vehicles before retail delivery.  Dealers should also consider this requirement to apply to used vehicle inventory and should perform this recall on vehicles in for service.  Involved vehicles can be determined by using the VIP inquiry process.

 

Subject

The passenger front seat fasteners on about 250 of the above vehicles may not be fully tightened to the specified torque. An occupant may notice a loose or rattling passenger seat.  If the fastener is not tightened to the specified torque, it could increase the risk of passenger injury in an accident.

 

Repair

Inspect the front passenger seat mounting fasteners for correct torque and repair if needed.

 

Parts Information

Due to the small number of involved vehicles expected to require seat bolts, no parts will be distributed initially.  Seat bolts should be ordered only after inspection determines that seat bolts are required.  Very few vehicles are expected to require seat bolts.
