The recall includes the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook. GM said it decided to begin the recall after customers reported damaged second row seat belts after the seats are lowered and returned to their original upright position.
The maneuver can cause the seat belt to jam or, in some cases, feel properly latched when it is not, The Detroit Free Press reported.
GM dealers will repair damaged seat belts and modify a faulty piece of interior trim that can push the buckles down the strap to fix the potential problem, a GM spokesman said.
Most of the affected CUVs were sold in the United States but some are in Canada, Mexico, China and Saudi Arabia.
