VF Commodore recalled to Holden dealerships

image98004_bA potential fault with the front seat belts has seen more than 3700 VF Holden Commodores recalled to New Zealand dealerships for inspection at no cost to their owners.

In a statement released to media, Holden says the recall applied to certain model year 2014 VF Commodore and Caprice variants.

“A condition has been identified where the pre-tensioner wiring harness on certain MY14 VF Commodore and WN Caprice vehicles may make contact with a bolt at the base of the seat belt buckle assembly,” says the statement from Holden.

“In this circumstance, if the pre-tensioner wiring harness develops wear as a result of contacting the bolt, the airbag warning light may illuminate on the instrument cluster and there is a risk that the pretensioner may not deploy in the event of an accident.”

Holden says the issue was discovered during an incident at the Elizabeth factory in South Australia where the Commodore is manufactured. Holden also says there have been no reports of any injuries or incidents as a result of this problem.

VF Commodore owners are urged to contact their local Holden dealership to arrange an inspection, the procedure will be carried at no cost to the owners.
