Component: SEAT BELTS
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 437,045

General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Chevrolet Malibu vehicles manufactured April 8, 2010, to October 11, 2012. In the affected vehicles, the flexible steel cables that connect the seat belts to the vehicle at the outside of the driver seat and the front passenger seat may be bent from being sat on while entering the vehicle. This repeated bending may result in the cable breaking.

If the cable breaks, the seat occupant may not be properly restrained in the event of a crash, increasing their risk of injury.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the outboard lap anchor mounting bracket and inspect the flexible steel cable, replacing it as necessary, free of charge. Owners received an interim notice on June 16, 2015. A second letter will be mailed when the remedy becomes available. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 15031.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
