JACKSON, Miss.- General Motors is recalling Chevrolet Impala sedans made before February 10, 2010, as well as all 2009 models,because airbags may not deploy in the event of an accident, according to a report by the National Traffic Safety Administration.
The recall could effect nearly 308,000 vehicles within the designated time period.
The company said that government documents were released stating that the front passenger seat frame may rub against the wiring connected to the passenger detection sensor. This damaged wiring could debilitate the sensor, rendering it useless to deploy the airbag in the case of a crash.
So far, two crashes have occurred with two injuries that could be tied to the problem.
Owners of this make and model should see their nearest dealership to mend the issue.
