Published on 23 May 2014

In the event of a crash, the driver seat belt anchor pretensioner piston may separate from the cable immediately after the pretensioner activation. This would reduce the protection afforded to the driver.

The recall affects vehicles produced from 07 October 20011 to 21 November 2012 with VINs from U5YPC813DCL109497 to U5YPC814ADL264640.
