GM Recalls More Than 300,000 Chevy Impalas
Last Friday, General Motors announced a recall of more than 300,000 Chevy Impalas due to a seat belt defect resulting in a failure to restrain front seat passengers in the event of a car accident.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the webbing on the seat belts may not be correctly fastened to a lap belt anchor located on the edge of the seat adjacent to the front doors. GM has received 32 warranty claims regarding Chevy Impala defective seat belts. However, they claim that they are unaware of any serious injuries or deaths caused by the defective product.
The recall covers 2009 and 2010 model Chevy Impalas in the United States and Canada. The vast majority of defective autos involved in the recall are located in the United States. Vehicle owners will be informed of recall protocol later in the month. To find out additional information at this time, you can contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438.
Local Chevrolet dealers across the country will examine the anchor mechanism of seat belts and make any repairs at no cost to vehicle owners.
If you have been injured as a result of the defective Chevy Impala seat belts, an experienced defective auto attorney can help you receive the compensation you deserve.
