It is possible that the steel cable for attaching the seat-belt tensioner on the outer side of the seat may suffer fatigue if used for a long time with the seat in certain positions. As a consequence, the steel cable could snap in the event of an accident, thus increasing the risk of injury to the person wearing the seat-belt.
The recall affects vehicles produced between 2009 and 2015.
