Isuzu MU-X seat-belt recall

Isuzu MU-X seat-belt Recall

Isuzu seven-seat SUV added to seat-belt recall.

The potential fault has been found in the design of the third-row seat-belts of the Isuzu MU-X and Holden Colorado 7.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission have confirmed that the Isuzu MU-X will also be recalled over a possible seat-belt design fault.

The MU-X, which was partially co-developed with General Motors, joins its distant cousin the Holden Colorado 7 in being recalled to have the issue with the retractor lock sensing mechanism fitted to the third-row seat-belts resolved.

The ACCC says that due to incorrect setting of the angle detection sensor, it is possible the seat-belt will not be able to extend when the vehicle is parked on a downhill slope.

If the defect occurs, passengers may not be able to fasten the seat-belt until the vehicle has moved, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a collision.

Just over 4700 Isuzu MU-X vehicles are affected, owners will be contacted directly by Isuzu.
