1998-1999 Oldsmobile Intrigues Recalled

Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has published the recall of certain 1998-1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue automobiles, manufactured between November 1996 - February 1999, because some of these passenger vehicles were built with rear seat shoulder belts that could twist, allowing the webbing to be jammed in the retractor.

When the shoulder belt webbing becomes jammed in the retractor, the seat belt becomes unusable. This could prevent a person from using the seat belt system, and the risk of injury to an unbelted person in a crash would increase.

Approximately 135,000 automobiles are affected by this recall.  Dealers will remove any twists from the rear shoulder belts and install clips to the belt web guide to prevent future twisting.

The manufacturer has reported that owner notification will begin during April 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537.

[NHTSA Recall No. 00V044/GM Recall No. 00011]
