Advisory details

On vehicles with the Access Cab body configuration, fasteners within the driver and passenger front seat belt assemblies could loosen if the access doors are repeatedly and forcefully closed over an extended period of time.

Should the fasteners loosen completely, the seat belt may not properly restrain the occupant, which could increase the risk of injury in a crash or sudden stop.

Correction: Dealers will replace the fasteners or the seat belt assemblies as necessary.
