The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the cars in question may have improperly attached seat belt webbing that could come free from the lap belt anchor in a car accident, providing little protection for the car's passengers.

If you own one of these cars, take it immediately to the nearest GM dealership for a seat belt retrofit to fix the problem. If you're not sure whether your car is covered or you need more information, you can contact Chevrolet at (800) 630-2438.
