Seat belt bolt recall and how to check yourself

Thanks for sharing. I am lucky and live close to a SC so will take mine in next week. I am interested to see, though, that your seatbelt latches are the usual black/orange. I was pleasantly surprised that this is my first car without the orange bits. That color contrast always bugged me in fine interiors.

Problem is 80 lbs is nothing. the original one did say all he did was lean over. and this is better than nothing, but even if it hold a yank of 200 lbs in a crash at highway speeds, without doing any math you are talking several hundred or even thousands of pounds of force from your 180-200lb body

If it is installed correctly, no problem; that's what it was designed for. If it is not installed correctly, this will find it. There is no middle ground.

I think they're saying that 80 lbs is enough to tell if it's properly attached, not that there's an 80 lb load in an impact.
