2001 Geo Tracker Recalled

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting certain 2001 Geo Tracker vehicles. The affected vehicles were manufactured in January 2001.

On certain 4-door sport utility vehicles, mislabeled seat belts intended for 2-door model vehicles were installed in the 4-door front passenger seat belt location. For the passenger seat safety belt, if the child seat mode has been engaged or the belt is extended during normal use and then retracted, the belt cannot be extended again and is unusable.

The reset function to normal emergency mode does not work because the 2-door belt webbing is shorter. In a crash, an unbelted occupant could receive severe injuries.

1,016 automobiles are affected by this recall.

Dealers will inspect and replace incorrect seat belt assemblies.

The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began May 3, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020.

[NHTSA Recall No. 01V124/GM Recall No. 01020]
