General Motors has voluntarily issued a Safety Recall regarding improperly anchored seats and seat belts. On May 13, 2015, GM reported that 437,045 Chevy Malibus, model-years 2011 – 2012, in the U.S. had seat belts that could come loose from the car after wear. According to GM, a steel cable connected to the safety belt can fail.
Also, GM is recalling 52,930 2015 model-year Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon mid-size trucks in the U.S. because seat frame attachment hooks were not properly attached to the body.
These seat belt and seat attachment defects can affect the safety and reliability of the occupant protection system in these vehicles, and put occupants at greater risk of injury from crashes.
If you or a loved one have been involved in a motor vehicle collision while a driver or passenger in a GM vehicle, contact Pope McGlamry online or at 877-285-7656 for a free case evaluation.
