GM Recalls 307K Impalas Over Airbag Issue

General Motors is calling back 307,000 older Chevy Impalas to fix an issue with the airbags. 

In the affected cars, the front passenger seat fram can rub against certain electrical wires, causing the airbag fuse to short circuit. This will render the passenger airbag useless in a collision.

Dealers will add anti-abrasion tape to the wires to prevent damage.
