Recall by Holden

11:49 am on 27 May 2014

Holden is to recall almost 46,000 cars in Australia and New Zealand after routine testing found a seatbelt fault.

The company said certain 2014 Commodore and Caprice models are affected, 3744 of them in New Zealand.

GM Holden said routine testing found an automatic mechanism to tighten seatbelts may fail in an accident as a result of friction with a bolt on the seatbelt buckle.

General Motors has been dealing with a string of problems this year, recalling more than 13 million vehicles in the United States.

There are no reports of injuries related to the problem.
