Seatbelt Suit Gets Class-Action Status
Fri Jul 5, 3:26 PM ET

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - A judge has granted nationwide class-action status to a lawsuit against DaimlerChrysler AG on behalf of owners of Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep vehicles that have a type of seat belt buckle...

...Edwards Law Firm LLP said in a news release the so-called Gen 3 buckle is prone to unlatching during accidents or from around child or infant car seats in sharp turns or sudden stops.

At least three deaths have been blamed on the buckle, and four others are under investigation, the law firm said.

The lawsuit first filed in 2000 seeks replacement of Gen 3 belt buckles on about 14 million Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep vehicles made since 1993...

...DaimlerChrysler now installs an updated seat belt in the front seats of minivans starting with the 2000 model year, but still uses the Gen 3 belts in the middle and rear seats.
