2014 smart FORTWO - SEAT BELTS Failure Complaint (#af038c)

2014 smart FORTWO

  • Date of Incident: Jun-13, 2022
  • Date complaint filed: Jun-17, 2022
  • Failed components: SEAT BELTS

Driver’s seatbelt broke at the tensioner as if the cable had been cut with wire cutters. My vehicle has not been involved in a wreck. Under normal driving conditions. Safety issue is if it broke this easily what would’ve happened if i had been involved in an accident? Of course i took the vehicle immediately to a repair shop and the cost to repair is $843. 31. Of course the parts have to be ordered. This is a safety issue it’s a law issue you have to have a seatbelt it’s not like i can’t live without the seatbelt. All my research shows that several people have complained about the same incident happening to them i was not driving the vehicle at the time i had just stopped at a store got back in my car and the seatbelt was broken.
