German carmaker Volkswagen will recall about 220,000 of its new Polo vehicles due to a problem with the rear seatbelt lock. 191,000 models of Seat Ibiza and Arona were also affected.

At Seat, the 2017 and 2018 models of its Ibiza vehicle and the 2018 model of its Arona vehicle are affected. The recall concerned a technical problem where the rear left seatbelt could be unintentionally released in some rare situations, for example during a fast lane change when the vehicle had five passengers on board.

The check, as well as the implementation of the belt lock fixture, would be free of charge for the affected Polo as well as Seat’s Ibiza and Arona models.

Seat in a separate statement advised its customers not to use the middle seat of the affected models until the cars had been fixed.

This is not the first time this year. Opel, Nissan, Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz have already announced their recalls, due to a possible seatbelt failure. Among the older recalls we also find Peugeot, Citroën, Jeep, Fiat or BMW.
