Faulty seat belt

General Motors on Oct. 15 announced the recall of 322.409 Chevrolet Impalas due to faulty seat belts.

GM said the front seat belt webbing in a "small number of vehicles" from the 2009 and 2010 model years may not have been properly secured to the lap belt anchor.

"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," GM said.

GM said it knows of no injuries or deaths related to the defect and that repairs will be done free of charge.
