General Motors’ Australian subsidiary, Holden, is recalling the Malibu midsize sedan over an issue with the rear seat belts.
The defect: a pivot pin inside the twin buckle assembly for the right-hand rear and rear centre seatbelts may not have been assembled correctly and may translate sideways.
The hazards: should the pivot pin translate sufficiently, the right-hand rear or rear centre seatbelt buckles may detach from their anchor plate. This may render the affected seatbelt unable to restrain an occupant, posing an increased risk of injury during a crash event.
