Malibus recalled



DETROIT - General Motors said Monday it will recall about 108,000 of its 2004 Chevrolet Malibus to fix a seat belt anchor that might detach in a severe side-impact crash and to reprogram an anti-lock brake system controller.

The recall covers certain Malibus built between May 2003 and March 2004.

Chevrolet dealers will insert a retainer in the seat belt anchor on both the driver and passenger sides of all the recalled vehicles. GM will reprogram the ABS controller in about 73,000 of the vehicles.

GM plans to notify customers in June about the recall. Customers should contact their dealers for service after receiving notification letters.

Repairs will be made at no cost to customers.
