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. 

As a result, it may not tighten the seatbelt properly in the event of an impact.

In the case of the SS we are talking about the car manufactured between May 14, 2013 and April 27, 2016 while in the case of the Caprice PP we are talking about the units built between May 14, 2013 and June 14, 2016.
