driver's seat belt

Having a problem with the seat belt retracting. Belt was replaced under warranty last week and problem continues. Returning to dealer but wonder if others have had this difficulty. Such a minor irritation for such a glorious
auto. Best new car I ever bought. A true keeper.

Never had any problems, but my wife always complains that her seat belt hangs up when she puts it on ... and, I tell her to pull it slower and it will be fine ... and, it is ...

Have this problem myself, but I'm pretty sure it's because the car is 6 years old. I've been monitoring ebay for a replacement belt in my interior color, but no luck. May have to break down at some point and just spring for a new one.

I also have this problem. It appears that the previous owner allowed the door to close before the seat belt was retracted resulting in a divot in the beautiful door panel. I am suprised to know that the replacement is also the same way. Please let me know if you find a correction.

seat belt warranty

I believe it might be ten year unlimited. You should check with a dealer. An advisor should be able to tell you right away.
