Approximately 340 model-year 2019-20 Buick Regal sedans are being recalled as they may have faulty driver or passenger front-seat crossbar welds. Insufficient or faulty welds on the front-seat structure may not provide adequate protection in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Buick manufacturer GM did not immediately announce an owner notification schedule. Owners can call Buick at 800-521-7300 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will inspect the crossbar welds and replace the seat if necessary.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
