On March 23, 2017 I was putting on my seat beat when all of a sudden I noticed it was no longer attached to the side of the drivers seat. I noticed that the aluminum cable , which has smaller strands of wire in the middle of it had totally broken from its base. The cable was no longer usable, therefore the vehicles drivers seatbelt could not secure the driver. I cannot tell you what caused this to happen. Possible bad design of the seat belt or metal fatigue come to my mind. The 2016 Chevrolet Impala only has a little over 25,000 miles on it. This seat belt breaking has me very concerned, not knowing if this will happen again in the near future even with the seat belt being replaced under warranty. I also know , being a retired law enforcement officer that there are a lot of Chevrolet Impalas being driver by officers out there along with other Chevrolet police cars and pick up trucks. In fact, I learned while at the dealership that the same problem has happened to the silverado pick up truck, according to one of the employees working there. Had this happened in a frontal or side impact, I am sure that I would have not been able to remain in my seat. I also had this happen in my 2014 Chevrolet Impala and the same separation of the seat belt from the side of the seat happened when I was rear ended at a traffic light . The seat belt was probably ready to break anyway, but the accident finished the task of it breaking. Chevrolet knew of this, but again the same style seatbelt that was in my 2014 Impala was in my 2016 Impala. I asked for the seatbelt parts of this fix, but the service folks at wallace Chevrolet said they would be sending them to someone to look at I noticed them that I would be writing you and to make sure the seatbelt can be viewed by other folks beyond the Chevrolet team if needed.

"takata recall" - service air bags warning just recently came up on my dashboard when driving. Passenger side seat belt sounds off, and flashes to fasten seat belt when there is no passenger is in the car, and the air bag panel flicks on and off consistently. When I open the drivers door, there a tapping like sound starts and continues for five to six seconds and then stops. When I push the heat and air levers, it stops. When I turn on the air or heat, it will make the tapping noise and stop after a short while. The noise seem to be getting louder. When the car is sitting in the heat or when in the car just sitting and the car not turned on, the same tapping noise will occur. The noise sounds like a wood pecker sound. It sound like it is located in the cooling system area, close by the dashboard area.

I am informing you of some very serious concerns in regards to parts of the 07 and 08 chevy Impala that have failed causing accidents as well as injury and grave potential for fatalities. Airbags not deploying, seat belts not locking on impact first and foremost I have requested copies of the paperwork that was submitted to the courts in somerset WI. This showed exactly what took place causeing an accident that was considered negligent due to medications I was on and my disability. The mechanic gave me this report along with info stating that this was a huge problem in fleet police vehicals. The info stated that the police vehicals were fixed and checked however this part has no recall or revision to correct the safety issues that we can find. My vehical does have high millage however it has been very well taken care of thanks to erickson oil and mechanic friends. This part snapping after cracking esily resulted in complete loss of control as well as the car locking up and becoming impossible to steer and stop. It is disturbing that these parts were not corrected from a manufactering aspect (this was looked at by a machinest, as well as an engineer and by the qaulity/dimesions/structure this part easily looked defective) the visual as well as skilled aproach to problem solving drove us to look up recalls prior to buying a new part. We could not find any. Just info that this exact make and model were purchased as fleet vehicals in 07 and 08. Problems with many of these cars resulted in pulling all of the fleet/govnt patrol cars in to be fixed/investigated. However we have been unable to find a recall or warning that should have also been issued to the public. I am currently looking into help to investigate and help get this looked at as it caused an accident as well as being unstable and faulty in another minor impact accident potentiaaly increasing fatality/injuries.

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.
