Both front seat belts become easily tangled/twisted and will not retract. The only way to get out of the belt is to pull it all the way out and then it gets stuck all the way out and will not retract. This happens on average every 50 times of using the belt. I have returned it to dealer 5 times and untwist it, but told me there is no way to fix it. This happens to both seat belts (driver and passenger side front belts). This has been happening on this vehicle since I purchased it a year ago. I have returned it to the dealer for this same repair 5 times so far. It is currently stuck again.
