GM Recall #:
N162075000

  • NHTSA #
  • AWAITING#


  • Date Issued:
  • Jan 26, 2017

Recall Title:
Front Seat Discrepant Welds on Manual Recliner Bracket
Recall Description:
General Motors has decided that certain 2016 and 2017 model year Chevrolet Cruze vehicles fail to conform to Federal/Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 202a, “Head restraints.” In some of these vehicles, a bracket used in the driver or front passenger seat-back recliner mechanism may have been incorrectly welded to the seat-back frame. Affected vehicles may not meet the head-restraint requirements of S4.3.1(a) of FMVSS/CMVSS 202a in a crash. In a crash, affected front seats may have reduced capability to manage occupant loads or maintain occupant position, and could potentially separate, increasing the risk of injury to occupants.
Safety Risk Description:
In a crash, affected front seats may have reduced capability to manage occupant loads or maintain occupant position, and could potentially separate, increasing the risk of injury to occupants.
Repair Description:
Dealers will inspect driver and front-passenger seats. If a seat has discrepant welds, the dealer will replace the seat-back frame.

Taking mine to the dealership for the brake light inspection on Monday. Might as well have them check my seats while I'm there.

Woot woot! The recall train is picking up steam now. Come on, Chevy/GM you can do better than this. I guess you want to show the world that Chevrolet really does stand for Constantly Having Every Vehicle Recalled Over Lousy Engineering Techniques.

If anyone has this done please let us know how involved it is and if there was any evidence of it being done (damage) thanks.
Go get it done, there won't be any damage. It's a few hour process, but if you're in an accident that seat will fold like a piece of bread.

I brought mine in. The passenger seat is manual, but the driver's is power. The passenger seat had to be removed to inspect the welds. There was no issues with mine, and they put it back together. My car was there from 7:30 to 3:30, they gave me a loaner. They also did the recall on my CHMSL, and my second oil change and rotation. I cannot tell that the removed the seat at all. I have not looked that hard, also.

No problems w/ my seats (manual ones) they checked it at oil change. It all was finished in hour and half w/ tail light bolt/ gasket fixed and tire and oil change so hmmm not sure why so fast but as long as it was all done Im thrilled. :) they said the seat bolt things seems hit and miss.

You really don't want evidence they removed it. Usually the evidence left behind on a sloppy job is scratches on the center console or B pillars.
