General Motors Japan Ltd. is recalling 841 Opel Vita cars due to a faulty seat-rail lock latch mechanism, Japanese news reports say. The recall affects models imported from Nov. 7, 2001, to Dec. 22, 2001, from GM’s Adam Opel AG subsidiary in Germany. The faulty mechanism could cause a seat to slide forward or backward without warning when the vehicle is in motion.
