Detroit, Michigan – General Motors is recalling 322,409 Chevrolet Impalas to inspect for front seatbelt webbing that may not have been properly secured to the lap belt anchor pretensioner mounted to the side of the seat.
The recall affects certain 2009 and 2010 Impalas for seatbelt pretensioners nearest the door.
Vehicles with the condition may have an anchor that can separate in a crash, and therefore may not meet the anchor strength requirements of the U.S. and Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard that covers seatbelt assembly anchorages.
Dealers will inspect both front seatbelts for proper installation and, if necessary, reinstall the anchors. Customers will be notified on or around October 25 by mail to bring their vehicles in for a free inspection. The company said it knows of no injuries or deaths related to the condition.
