GM recalls 250,000 vehicles

FAULTY BELTS: General Motors Co. is recalling nearly 250,000 crossover vehicles worldwide to inspect second-row seat belts that could be damaged and not latch.

MODELS AFFECTED: 2009-2010 models of the Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook. Most of the 243,403 recalled vehicles are in the U.S. but some are in Canada, Mexico and elsewhere.

WHAT'S WRONG: The seat-belt buckle could get caught when the seat back is returned to an upright position. That could make the buckle appear to be latched when it really isn't. GM isn't aware of any cases where the belts failed to perform properly in a crash.
