“The issue has to do with the metal frame of the two extreme seats: the one on the right and the one on the left as you open the back seat. In the event of an accident, the seat belt is expected to restrain you from being thrown overboard; but in this case, there is a possibility that the seat belt may get cut and come in contact with the metal frame. This may cause some compromise to the system,” he said.

Ojo said dealers will contact owners of the recalled vehicles, adding that it would only take 30 minutes to fix the problem.

“It is a simple process, which will neither deface the vehicle nor diminish its beauty in any form,” he explained.

These affected car owners are not expected to pay for this service.
