Chevrolet Impala owners have reported 46 problems related to seat belt (under the seat belt category).
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.

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?.

My driver side and back seat in the middle seat belts will not lock. I attempt to attach the seat belt as it should but will not lock and if it does click to lock the first bump (pot hole) I hit it unbuckles. Very unsafe.
The bolt/clip to the passenger side front seat belt clip to the b-pillar fell off while driving without any pressure applied. The same happened approximately six months ago. After both times, I had to screw and tighten the bolt/screw to reattach the seat belt clip to the b-pillar. Seat belts are one of the most important safety components of a vehicle. Failure of the b-pillar clip/support of a seat belt in the event of a collision would likely result in a catastrophic injuries, which may have been preventable should the seat belt have functioned property as intended.
We own the car listed above and have for over two years. We bought it at a dealership in east tennessee. The car was previously used as a rent a car for enterprise. Not even a year after we bought the vehicle we had to replace the transmission. The biggest problem is the fact I have drove this car and all issues stated for a recall we have had a problem with. The most recent is the vehicle shutting off while driving it on highways. It's is saying service engine light mad than will say service traction control,than it will shutoff I been going 70 down an interstate and it shutoff mad about kill us. We had the vehicle checked and the accelerator pedal sensor or something like that is the problem by what technician say. I am just now starting to research the issues we have and found numerous recalls on this vehicle in which we have the problems listed above and more. Mainly the airbag steering control arm and vehicle just shutting off. I guess the best way to sum it up is they sold us a lemon perhaps but after looking at the recall list our vehicle meets the requirements for sure. Too many problems for a new vehicle. Just looking to take care of the problem before the car injures us or someone else on the highways. Hope this doesn't take long to get resolved because deaths could occur. Thanks for your time hope to speak with someone soon before it's too late. I mean I thought something major was wrong but the automd website really assured what we been thinking. Thanks for your time.
Potential defective seat belt assemblies causing airbag lights to come on and off intermittently when the seats are moved forward and backwards. Local repair shop performed diagnostic test and the code displayed led them to the passenger side air bag. Within a day of the repair the light came back on but went off and has not illuminated since. I have contacted gm (case # sr # 71-13111-46047) and they have refused to assist stating there are no recalls for this issue for the Impala and will not reimburse me since I used a local repair shop and not a gm dealership. I believe this is a defective seat belt assembly that gm has installed in chevy Impala’s and they refuse to take ownership. Their track record with faulty parts and failure to recall unsafe vehicles has been proven. I feel this is a serious safety concern and I am asking the ntsb look into this matter.
I was involved in an accident on may 4, 2014. I hit another vehicle from the rear. There was extensive damage to my vehicle yet my air bag did not deploy. Also my seat belt failed to lock. As a result I hit the steering wheel with my mouth. I also hit the windshield with the top of my head. My teeth cut into my bottom lip and I had to go to the er later that night because of the pain. I feel that had the airbag deployed I wouldn't have sustained the injury that I did.

Air bag light came on in may 2, 2014, and an email was received by the owner (me) that they should have a oil change- they did that and at the same time they told the person in the autonations garage that the air bag light comes on and they came back with a check up and said it was the sensor for the air bag rubbing on the seat belt and ruined it. Causing possible injuries to person/persons in the moving vehicle if an accident ever occured. This was then taken care of by autonations garage with "thomas asm" & the tech was "pete" ! amount for replacement $445. 07 vehicle had just run out of warranty! oil change along with tire alignment and other check ups that day came to $ 735. 63 .

My seat belts won't lock properly. The passenger belt has the most issues and you have to push it in and then click it. In and then you can't guarantee it will stay locked.
Drivers seat belt will not retract. Loose against drivers.
1. The car would stop accelerating and completely turn off while driving. Steering wheel would lock and would coast to a stop. All the lights on instrument panel and everything would turn off. 2. 3 seat belt latches no longer work.

I bought this vehicle used 17 months ago and have had intermitten problem with seatbelt but yesterday the seat belt would not buckle into latch on driver's side at all, checked for debris, coins in the way, not there. The red release latch will not release and pop back open so that it can accept the buckle. I called the dealer and he said there are no recalls for this item and I can bring it in and pay $106. 00 for them just to look at it. I am going to try and find the parts to fix it myself.

May 2013 I purchased a 2012 Impala fully certified by the chevy dealer. On 9/25/2013 I was stopped on I-80 due to traffic. A woman traveling 53 mph slammed into me causing me to take out the next 3 cars. I filed an investigation with gm to review the vehicle information (which is how I know how fast she was traveling). The airbag light was on, but no airbags deployed, and the seat belt had restrained me only after I violently bounced off of the steering wheel. When this was reported to gm it was stated that there are three lines of defense in a vehicular accident #1 the body of your vehicle #2 your seat belt #3 airbag deployment. 2/3 lines of defense had failed me. Gm had no conclusion after the accident and I received the reports from the engineers. I was traveling fast enough into the car ahead of me for the airbags to have deployed, and the seat belt should have restrained me. Nearly a year later, I am greatful that one line of defense had prevented further injuries, but this is something that I will forever feel the negative impacts of. With recent news investigations into gm's faulty airbag deployment, clearly they can look beyond just the older models of Impalas.
