WASHINGTON (Bloomberg) -- General Motors Co. is recalling 303,100 Impala cars in the U.S. because seat belts in the front seat may not be properly anchored and may not restrain passengers in a crash.
The company will reinstall seat-belt anchors in the Impala for model years 2009 and 2010 that have the defect, according to a letter on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Web site today.
“If it occurs, the belt can separate in a crash, so it's obviously something we need to get taken care of,” Alan Adler, a GM spokesman, said in an interview. “It separates at the anchor to the lower part of the seat.”
No injuries are associated with the defect, which GM discovered through warranty reports, he said.
