The driver seat belt is sticking and will not latch. If you do get it to latch it will unlatch with the slightest movement. I took the vehicle to the dealership to have it looked at. They told me the technician was unable to get the latch unstuck. They told me it was a faulty mechanism and that it would need to be replaced, but they do not just replace the latch, they would have to replace the latch and the entire seat belt assembly with the tensioner. However they did not have this item in stock and they would have to order it and I would have to bring the vehicle back for the repairs. In the mean time I am driving with a faulty seat belt that is not only a safety issue but a legal issue. I must wear my seatbelt - it is the law. But unfortunately it will not latch.

Attempted to latch seatbelt on driver's side. Buckle would not latch. Buckle slides in but latch does not lock buckle in place. Contacted dealer and was told. "why would the warranty cover that?" with all the recent seat belt issues with manufacturers, I would have thought this would have been a concern to the dealer.

I have tried pulling on each front seat belt very quickly to trigger the motion sensitive retractor to see if the seat belt retractors would lock up. They no longer do. When the car was newer, I could pull on the retractors very quickly and the seat belt retractors would lock up as if an occupant moved forward quickly after a collision.

To whom it may concern: I am writing this letter on behalf of my parents for the great abuse that has been done to them. About 3 years ago they were really excited because for the first time in there life after living here for close to 40 years they would have bought a car from a dealership! a fairly new car, first car from a local agency in madera. The name of the dealer: madera Chrysler Jeep Dodge. They sold my parents a defective from the beginning. They knew about the recalls since 10/13/2010 and 05/25/2010 this was before they even purchased the car 11/26/2011. They are doing unlawful sales to vulnerable poor customers and are not in compliance. According to general motors it is and was completely the car dealerships responsibility to fix these recalls (please see attached list of recalls). Their solution is to well purchase a new car from them. They still have our car and have made no intent to fix it. Please help us put a stop to this bad and corrupt sales manager who takes advantage of hispanic latinos who don’t read or speak spanish. There are many families at risk who might buy a car that is defective and there can be a horrible catastrophe or death. Sincerely, maria rodriguez.

Driver and passenger seat belts have cuts in the out side edges. Seems to be caused by the re-tractor mechanism as the cuts are inside the door pillars when they are retracted. Has this happened on any other Impalas and what should we do?.
