If you thought Toyota has had a bad year in terms of recalls you may want to spare a thought for General Motors, apparently they will be recalling more than 243,000 vehicles pretty soon.

General Motors announced this recall on Tuesday, apparently the recall affects almost a quarter of a million crossover sport utility vehicles with the model year 2009/2010.

The recall itself is said to be due to concerns regarding the safety belts, apparently GM are worried that potential damage could trick people into thinking it was secured when it was not.

Affected vehicles include the Buick Enclave, Saturn Outlook, Chevy Traverse and the GMC Acadia most of which were shipped within the US, however some were exported to other countries such as China, Mexico, Saudi Arabia and Canada.

So far there have been no reports of the safety belts failing in a crash, however you can understand that GM wanted to get this checked out as soon as possible.

If you think you may own an affected model I would recommend contact your local GM dealer, also double check your safety belt when driving your car.
