General Motors Has Recalled the 1994 Saturn Z
- General Motors Has Recalled the 1994 Saturn Z because of a potential
problem with the passenger seat.
Number of Units Affected: 72135
Manufactured: 07/1993 - 03/1995
ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES, SOME FRONT SEAT BACK RECLINER GEAR TEETH MAY
WEAR EXCESSIVELY THROUGH REPEATED USE, AND COULD CAUSE THE SEAT BACK TO SLIP
PARTIALLY REARWARD WHEN FORCE IS APPLIED.
IF THIS HAPPENS WHILE THE VEHICLE IS BEING DRIVEN, IT COULD CAUSE A LOSS OF
CONTROL, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE VEHICLE'S FRONT SEAT RECLINER MECHANISMS. THIS IS
AN EXPANSION OF A PREVIOUS RECALL (99V045). GM HAS NOT YET PROVIDED AN OWNER
NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO
AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE
FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT SATURN AT
1-800-553-6000, PROMPT 3.
