SEAT BELTS

THE REAR CENTER 3-POINT SEATBELT LOCKS WITHOUT ANY OCCUPANT AND THEN FAILS TO RELEASE. IF I DO NOT UNBOLT THE SEAT BELT FROM THE FLOOR, THE RETRACTOR CONTINUES TO TIGHTEN AND BEGINS TO CRUSH THE SEATBACK CUSHIONING. I HAVE NOT HAD MORE THAN A FEW PASSENGERS USE THE CENTER SEAT, BUT THE BELT RETRACTION MECHANISM SHOULD NOT FAIL AFTER BEING USED LESS THAN A DOZEN TIMES OVER THE LIFE OF THE VEHICLE.
