General Motors Co. said Friday that it is recalling about 111,000 Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain and Cadillac SRX small SUVss because the anchor to the seat-belt buckle may fail, which could lead to injury in a crash.

The 2011  vehicles were delivered in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Dealers will start notifying owners of the vehicles involved in January, GM said. GM will pay for the work done by dealers.

The buckles were made by Hyojin of Korea and supplied to Autoliv, GM said.

GM spokesman Alan Adler said there are no replacement parts involved in the remedy to be applied by dealers. The issue is in assembly, he said.

Of the total 111,136 recalled vehicles, GM said, 67,805 are Equinox models, 29,926 are Terrain models, and 13,405 are SRX models.

In November, GM recalled nearly 200,000 compact pickups due to missing child seat anchors. The two recalls are not for the same issue, Adler said.

GM shares were down 0.3 percent, at $33.50, on the New York Stock Exchange at midday. The automaker’s shares had an initial public offering price of $33 when it  relaunched on the NYSE on Nov. 18.
