Why wasn't this covered under warranty?

I know your post was some time ago but I had the same experience with my 2010 Camry. My son is 4 and the belt became entangled around his neck. I have taken the car to the dealer. I have called customer relations. It saddens me that it seems to be a non issue with them and almost implied it was user error that he couldnt be released because I was panicked. I have worked in health care for over 10years and I am accustomed to maintain composer during critical times and am insulted they would imply that. I had to cut my son from the seat belt because even though I released the tension the seat belt became tighter and tighter. They have since offered to replace the belts but I want them to look into issues with the mechanism

My 6 year old became entangled in her seatbelt yesterday. The seatbelt continued to tighten the more I attempted to loosen it's grip around her waist. There was absolutely no release of the tension despite my efforts. I ended up having to cut the belt in order to free her from the seatbelt. When I called the dealership, I was given a quote of $148 for the belt and about $200 for labor. I immediately went to the internet and began researching if other consumers had similar experiences and sure enough, I found a few. I took the time to post with the hope that my experience will help another consumer. I am hoping that the dealership will offer to replace the belt for free or at least with a significant discount considering this is obviously not due to human error. Oh.... have a 2007 Toyota Camry.

I have had the exact same issue, except they told me the belt was 280 and the labor was 60. I've contacted transportation safety people, Toyota, and among a few other people and haven't received a response. This is a safety hazard and should be completely replaced. Really irritated.

This just happened to my 13 year old daughter. The belt kept tightening around her waist and chest and we couldn't loosen it. My husband is a career firefighter and is very distressed at how dangerous this is. We had to cut her out. She is now sporting a pair of bruises across her hips!
