General Motors is telling dealers to stop selling the four-door version of the 2013 Cadillac ATS because of possible seat belt problems.

The issue is a cable that retracts to tighten the belt. It may not lock into position, allowing a passenger to slide around too much during an accident.

GM says the 2013 Buick Encore has the same problem.

Dealers will replace the parts.

Other recalls issued today include:

14,940 2014-2015 Chevrolet Impala sedans. On some LT and LTZ models equipped with a front console storage compartment, the latch on the compartment door may not lock in a rear collision and the compartment door may open. Dealers will replace the latch. Dealers must hold unsold models until repairs can be made. GM said it knows of no associated crashes or injuries.

1,968 2009-2010 Chevrolet Aveo and 2009 Pontiac G3 because brake fluid may not protect against corrosion and could lead to poor braking. This was originally a customer satisfaction program issued in 2012 and has been reclassified as a safety recall. GM fixed about two-thirds of the vehicles under the earlier program; the recall for the 1,968 cars is for the one-third of cars that weren’t fixed. GM knows of no associated crashes or injuries.

1,919 2014 Chevrolet Spark models for left and right lower control arm attaching bolts that may not be tightened to specification. GM has informed owners to have vehicles transported to dealerships. GM knows of no associated crashes or injuries.

3,624 models of the 2013-2014 Cadillac ATS for front exterior lighting issues outside the United States.
