2021 Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC Full-Size SUVs Recalled for Damaged Seat Belts
We’re fans of the 2021 Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, and GMC Yukon full-size SUVs, particularly because of the vastly improved third rows over the outgoing generation. Unfortunately, those third rows are at risk in the latest recall from parent automaker GM, which is issuing its second recall in three months for these vehicles over faulty seat belts.

This time, the affected vehicles include the entirety of the model-year 2021 GM full-size SUV lineup: the Escalade and Escalade ESV, Suburban and Tahoe, and Yukon and Yukon XL. At issue are the backseat outboard seat belts, which may have been entrapped or misrouted behind the outboard seat-folding mechanism. This could result in damaged seat belts that can break in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
GM dealers will inspect the third-row outboard seat belts and reroute or replace any damaged ones for free. GM will begin notifying owners May 3, but those with questions may contact Cadillac at 800-458-8006, Chevrolet at 800-222-1020, GMC at 800-462-8782 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236. They also can visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
