General Motors recalling 2009-2010 Chevy Impala due to seat belt concerns

General Motors is recalling the 2009-2010 Chevrolet Impala due to seat belt concerns.

The issue is that the front seat belt webbing may not be secured properly to the lap belt anchor. Because of this, the anchor can separate in a crash.

332,409 cars are affected. Dealers will inspect the anchors and reinstall them if necessary, free of charge. Owners of affected cars will be notified sometime around October 25th.

GM Recalls Impalas to Inspect Safety Belt Anchors

DETROIT — General Motors is recalling 322.409 Chevrolet Impalas from the 2009 and 2010 model years to inspect for a small number of vehicles whose front seat belt webbing may not have been properly secured to the lap belt anchor pretensioner mounted to the side of the seat nearest the door.

Vehicles with this 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 seat belt assembly anchorages.

Dealers will inspect both front seat belts for proper installation of anchors to pretensioners and, if necessary, reinstall the anchors. GM knows of no injuries or deaths related to this condition. Customers will be notified on or around Oct. 25 by mail to bring their vehicles in free inspection. Any repairs related to this condition will be done free of charge.
