300,000 Chevy Impalas recalled over seat belts


DETROIT — General Motors Co. said Friday it was recalling more than 300,000 Chevrolet Impala sedans because the seat belts may fail to restrain front-seat passengers in a crash.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the front seat-belt webbing may not be secured properly to a lap-belt anchor on the side of the seat near the doors.

The recall affects 2009 and 2010-model Impalas. GM said 303,100 vehicles are in the United States and more than 19,000 are in Canada. Dealers will reinstall the anchors if needed at no cost.
