General Motors is recalling more than 484,000 large SUVs in the U.S. to fix a problem that can cause the third-row seat belts to malfunction.

The recall covers Chevrolet Suburbans and Tahoes, Cadillac Escalades and GMC Yukons from the 2021 and 2022 model years.

The automaker says in documents posted Tuesday by U.S. safety regulators that rivets that hold the buckle to the mounting bracket on the left- and right side third-row seats may have been formed improperly. The belts may not properly restrain a passenger in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

The company says it’s not aware of any crashes or injuries caused by the problem.

Dealers will inspect the rivet heads and replace buckle assemblies if needed. Owners will be notified starting Sept. 26.

  1. Interesting joke in the headline. Not sure it is fair or accurate.

    Related question: Can the askonim, or anyone else, lobby the auto makers to make a car big enough for a family of nine? Is such a thing possible?

  2. To Yeshiva world, how dear you compare askanim with plain shvitzers???? Do you know how many askanim turn themselves over to help other jews!!!!, how dear you compare the plain vichtig marchers to askanim, I personally know someone who has connections in the hospital and many times he is woken in middle of the night to help other Jews and he doesn’t drive an SUV

  3. I DONT KNOW ABOUT IN BROOKLYN but in queens recently a very large growing percentage of hatzolah members drive SUV’s of that type
