May 19, 2015 – General Motors is recalling nearly 470,000 Chevrolet Malibu midsize cars in Canada, the United States and Mexico due to potentially weakened steel cables that link the front seat belts to the vehicle. The cable can weaken and separate as people move in the seats, it noted.

According to the company, the recall covers vehicles from the 2011 and 2012 model years.

Dealers will replace a mounting bracket and inspect the cable and replace the lap-tensioning mechanism if needed.

About 53,000 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize pickup trucks in Canada and the U.S. from the 2015 model year are also being recalled due to seat frame hooks that weren’t installed properly during assembly.
