Probably 75% of the time I cannot pull my seatbelt out from the B pillar with less than 4-5 pulls. It doesn't seem to matter if I pull it fast or slow, or what angle I pull. FWIW, it locks immediately. Any thoughts?

Sounds like a fault...over to the stealers I'm afraid.

I've had belts in other cars over 40+ years that were recalled as being under sensitive to inertia/speed of lock-up.

Is the passenger belt the same?

This also starts to occur for my MY13 recently, both driver and passenger side. The belt will be snag with no slack. A horizontal pull at the top portion a few times seems to work sometimes but not guaranteed.

Thanx guys. It looks like it's time for me to go get free coffee and a bagel, and be told it is my imagination.
