Detroit, Michigan – May 12, 2015 – A condition that could lead to weak safety belts has General Motors recalling hundreds of thousands of Chevrolet Malibu cars, according to the Detroit News.
The source says one injury has so far been traced to the defect. It will recall more than 469,000 vehicles total from around the world, the majority of which will be in North America.
Vehicles that suffer this defect could see the metal cable connecting the seatbelt weaken and even separate completely over time.
To fix the problem, car dealers will be able to replace the lap pretensioner and outboard lap mounting bracket.
