The problem: according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) filing, certain Isuzu/Chevrolet commercial trucks equipped with the dual-mode belt locking mechanism seat belt assembly may use belts with improperly manufactured webbing.
The hazards: the NHTSA filing says the seatbelts pose an increased risk of injury, as they may not be able to properly restrain vehicle occupants in the event of a crash.

The fix: dealers will inspect the seatbelts and replace the seatbelt assembly as necessary. These repairs will be done at no cost to the owner.
