I had to drive home without my seatbelt on tonight as I found it really difficult to put in the fastener and when I eventually did get it in the seatbelt was choking me. I noticed this problem started a couple of weeks ago the seatbelt won't pull out far enough. Has anyone else got this problem?

Hi Michelle and welcome to the forum :D

Sounds like a faulty tensioner jambing up in the seatbelt.
Take the car back to the dealership, get them to check the seatbelt.
This is a safety issue, and usually they replace with a new seatbelt if the tensioner is faulty.

One other reason could be the seat belt itself has twisted itself around by one rotation, hidden behind the trim, that also jambs it up. (had that in a Honda, and I untwisted the belt myself, by removing the trim and seeing the problem).

No matter the problem its best the dealership sort it for safety sake. (assuming you are still under warranty).
