General Motors Co. said it is recalling 303,100 Chevrolet Impalas because the vehicles' front seat belts may not properly protect passengers.

The automaker said that in in 2009 and 2010 Impalas, the front safety belt straps may not be not secured to the lap belt anchor pretensioner that is mounted on the side of the doors.

The straps can separate from the anchor in a crash, no longer restraining the passenger. No injuries or deaths have been reported, GM said.

The 2009 Chevrolet Impaler. Is that an Obama project, or just union?

Design flaw or is it just on the cars assembled on Monday morning or Friday afternoon?

I hear the new slogan was “General Motors - Close Enough For Government Work”.
