GM recalling Malibus to fix seat belts, brakes

DETROIT April 19, 2004; The AP reported that General Motors Corp. said Monday it will recall about 108,000 Chevrolet Malibu cars from the 2004 model year to fix a seat belt anchor that may detach in a severe side-impact crash and reprogram an antilock brake system controller.

The recall covers certain Malibus built between May 2003 and March 2004. Of the total, about 95,000 of the vehicles are in the United States and about 8,300 are in Canada. The rest were sold elsewhere.

Chevrolet dealers will insert a retainer in the seat belt anchor on both the driver and passenger sides of all the recalled vehicles. GM will reprogram the ABS controller in about 73,000 of the vehicles.

There have been no reports of incidents or injuries related to either condition, GM said.

GM plans to notify customers in June about the recall. Customers should contact their dealers for service after receiving notification letters. Repairs will be made at no cost to customers.
