General Motors Recall

In the most recent recall from the automobile industry, General Motors is recalling more than 300,000 Chevrolet Impala sedans due to failure of its seatbelts. As reported on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the front seatbelt webbing of the 2009 and 2010 Chevrolet Impala may not be secured properly to the lap belt anchor on the side of the seat near the doors - which is a violation of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 210 (Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages). As a result, the seatbelts may fail to restrain people in the front seats during a crash and could cause injury or death. It is believed that there are 303,100 vehicles involved in this recall that are in the United States, as well as 19,000 vehicles in Canada.

General Motors said in a statement that it was unaware of any injuries or deaths connected to the product defect. It had, however, told NHTSA that it had received 32 warranty reports on the seat belt condition through mid August. Upon receipt of the recall, owners should return their vehicle to their dealer to have this area of the vehicle inspected. The dealer will be reinstalling the anchors as needed at no cost to the owners. Owners can contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 or through their owner center at www.gmownercenter.com.
