The passenger seat belt has an alternate mode activated by pulling the belt all the way out, which activates a retract-only ratchet so it will hold the passenger close to the seat until released. I paid to have it fixed, and they spliced into the wire, not covered under warranty according to care. I am enclosing the copy of repair this past June. I took my car back into the shop and was told that it was the same problem but a different wheel. The failure mileage was 86,000.
Chevrolet has issued a service bulliten to direct their dealers in fixing this but only under warantee, showing they are aware of the problem yet took no action to assist consumers experiencing this issue. Same for the default wheel bearings one winter in Michigan and they had to be replaced also not a covered feature. I then returned to the service department on May 16 2014. After replacing it the light did not go off so they scheduled another appointment to check into the problem again. Suggest crash testing with braking from 70 to 40 mph just prior to collision rather than cruising into the barrier at steady 40. The driver's belt does not have that feature. The rear brake lights stayed in the on position and were only noticed when our son kevin was following us on a trip this past June.
The manufacturer was contacted to schedule an appointment with the dealer. Was told that I had to wait at least till the car had 1700 miles on it so the new parts would settle. I am paying for a problem that a recall has been issued on while others owners are not. The contact had not experienced a failure. The manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was 14,000. Wheel bearings in rear both sides have been replaced before 80000 miles.
The dealer informed the contact, but made no mention as to why the repair was not completed before the vehicle was sold. For a manufacture based out of a state that has snow, and to provide a vehicle that has a stability sensor that gets dirty because of salt that will error is beyond my comprehension.

Even when ready for that, the force needed is a distraction from what's happening on the road and makes it more difficult to steer. It just like my key issue with my 2004 Impala. Brake pads feature a metal backing plate with friction material on its face that presses against the brake rotor surface to stop your vehicle.
Make a long story short there was a valid recall on this car. While driving 35 mph, the vehicle was difficult to stop. I still have the intermittent brake issue in which one mechanic agreed that he felt the long pedal on the brakes. While driving 45 mph, the accelerator pedal was depressed, but the vehicle hesitated to accelerate. For a manufacture based out of a state that has snow, and to provide a vehicle that has a stability sensor that gets dirty because of salt that will error is beyond my comprehension. Under moderate braking, before enough deceleration occurs to lock the belt, the driver can travel very far forward and it's hard to hold oneself back. That as in February 2017.

Also, experts have said that being tense during a collision makes injuries worse or more likely. I have taken this car back 4 other times for this brake issue. Funny how the 2015 models have a screw in them but nothing for us poor 2014 owners that had an issue. Car stalls boggs down at 70 mph. The complainant has tested this many times under straight braking on 25-45 mph roads with the seat as far back as is drivable and the wheel as far away as practical for a slightly below average size guy.
The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. They are compressed by the brake caliper when it receives hydraulic pressure from the master cylinder. I was told not to drive the vehicle. Have appointment with dealership to be ripped off some more. The other rear hub on my car is showing cracks in this ring and will need to be replaced as well.
