The National Highway Transport Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued a recall for Chevrolet SS and Chevrolet Caprice Police Pursuit models. The problem? A fault with the seatbelt tensioner cable. According to NHTSA the action of the driver getting into and out of the car may bend the cable over the seat side shield. Repeated many times, it could cause the cable to fatigue and crack.
