GM recalls 2011 crossovers over safety belt issue

General Motors Co. is recalling nearly 100,000 2011 crossovers over potentially faulty safety belts — its third similar recall this year.

In total, GM has recalled more than 600,000 vehicles worldwide this year over varying safety belt issues.

GM said today it will recall 97,843 2011 Cadillac SRX, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain vehicles over concerns the driver and or front passenger safety belt buckle anchor may fracture and separate during a crash. That could disable the restraint system and send a driver or passenger flying in a crash.

The recall was prompted by seat belt tests at GM's Milford proving grounds in September. In two of the tests, the seat belt buckle separated from the anchor.

GM's investigation found an "unauthorized change to the anchor tooling" that "reduced anchor strength."
