    I wonder what Michelle Obama will say when she hears that GM is accommodating the excssively girthful with free seatbelt extenders! They've already enlarged cupholders to better hold "BIGGY" sizes, what will be next 24" wide seat bottoms with deflatible bolsters!

    With obesity on the rise, I'm surprised we haven't seen a resurgence of bench seats.

    I find it amusing that American cars have the shortest seat belts while Japanese cars have the longest.

    Re: GM gives away Free Seatbelt Extenders with no cost shipping

    I`m glad i found this info before i shelled out $$$`s to buy 2 for my front seats! My '78 Sedan Deville has the lay flat short receptacles i really can`t reach. I`ll bet the color won`t match though since GM does`nt have as many color options these days compared to back in the day when they had many color options.
    I got a ticket last night for not wearing my seat belt,so if i can get extensions i`ll surely wear the belt.
    I still don`t know how the cop could see i was`nt wearing a belt at night.It was real dark outside.

    Extenders should be free. Since safety items in cars aren't part of a limited warranty and are good for life, manufacturers should be offering them free since they shouldn't want possible liability...

    wait if im understanding you correctly
    then if say my seat belt for some reason stops working or if the hook gets jammed then the dealer or GM has to fix it for free under lifetime warranty ?

    or am i miss understand what your saying

    also what other safety items are considered under lifetime warranty
    airbags ?
    if say one malfunctions and goes off but its not from an accident or if you get the service airbag msg on and then they check that out and find your airbag is not functioning properly do they have to replace that for free ?

    Just like recalls usually encompass any vehicle at no cost to the owner because of safety issues, malfunctioning safety measures are covered by the manufacturer. This does not include modification or abuse by the vehicle owner.
