What are the defects?

Due to a defect during assembly, the driver and passenger's seatbelt locking mechanism may engage at the incorrect point. As a result, the seatbelt could engage tightly across the chest and waist and limit movements which may lead to restricted visibility. Additionally, the seatbelt could require increased effort to unbuckle.

What are the hazards?

Limited movement and restricted visibility for the driver may increase the risk of an accident causing serious injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users. In the event of an emergency exit from the vehicle an increased effort to unbuckle the seatbelt could increase the risk of serious injury or death to vehicle occupants.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted directly by their Lotus dealer to arrange a service date for replacement of the seatbelts, free of charge.
