“Due to a defect during assembly, some vehicles may have the driver’s seatbelt assembled incorrectly,” the company says in its recall notice.
“This will reduce the effectiveness of the seatbelt in the event of an accident.
“If the seatbelt is not assembled correctly, it will not adequately restrain the occupant in a crash, increasing the risk of injury or death.”
