Consumer Information Notice - General Motors Owner's Manual - 2004 Chevrolet Aveo, Optra and Epica

TP 2436
Road Safety Leaflet # D-2004-06 (E)



General Motors has decided that the text and graphics currently provided in certain owner's manuals for the 2004 Chevrolet Aveo, Optra and Epica insufficiently describe the routing of the tether strap in those vehicles fitted with the standard head restraint.

The owner's manual supplied with the vehicle did not provide instructions on how to route the top tether strap of a forward-facing children's restraint system with respect to the positioning of the head restraint in the vehicle.

To resolve this, General Motors has sent letters and instruction manual inserts to all owners of these vehicles. The insert describes how the tether strap of the children's restraint system must be threaded between the head restraint and the vehicle seat back and then affixed to the tether anchorage. The tether strap is not to go over the head restraint.

If an insert has not been received, Transport Canada recommends that the owner of the vehicle contact General Motors to receive a copy of the new instructions.
