Remember last week when Mary Barra said that GM recalls have been “substantially completed?” Apparently, she does not.

General Motors has just recalled 48,114 models for defective seatbelts. Reportedly, the pretensioner cables might not lock in certain conditions, meaning that, instead of tightening in an accident, they could loosen. Both the 2013 Cadillac ATS sedan and the 2013 Buick Encore compact SUVs are affected. Affected models were built between April 23, 2012, and May 1, 2013.

Parts are not yet available, but affected drivers will receive notification soon to take their cars into the dealerships to get them fixed.

Not sure if your vehicle will be involved in this recall? Check out GM’s recall site (yes, the automaker had to build one of those because of all the recalls) with your VIN to see if you’re in trouble.
