WASHINGTON — General Motors Co. is recalling about 100,000 crossover vehicles to fix seat belts that could fail in a crash.

GM said Friday in a posting with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that the recall involves 2011 model year versions of the Cadillac SRX, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain. The automaker said the seat belt buckle anchor for the driver and front passenger seats could break apart in a crash.

The recall is expected to begin in mid-January.
