GM to recall 28,789 Saabs for safety flaw
General Motors is recalling 28,789 Saab convertibles because the driver’s seat-belt retractor can break.
The recall involves vehicles from the 2004-2011 model-years.
GM says if the retractor breaks, the seat belt immediately will loosen and won’t work properly. That increases the risk of an injury in an accident.
The company isn’t aware of any injuries related to the issue. GM will contact owners, and dealers will replace the seat-belt retractors for free.
GM owned Saab at the time many of the vehicles were made. It sold the brand in 2010.
