GM issues recall over airbag issues

DETROIT – General Motors (GM) announced Friday a voluntary recall of approximately 3.64 million 2014-17 model year vehicles in the United States.

The sensor which controls airbag and pretensioners deployment has been found to contain a software defect that may prevent the deployment of frontal airbags in cases where other damage may have previously done to the car.

The recall includes certain:

  • 2014-2016 model year Buick LaCrosse and Chevrolet SS and Spark EV
  • 2014-2017 model year Chevrolet Corvette, Trax, Caprice PPV and Silverado 1500; Buick Encore; and GMC Sierra 1500
  • 2015-2017 model year Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban and Silverado HD; GMC Yukon, Yukon XL and Sierra HD; and Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV

GM will notify customers, and dealers will update the software free of charge.

Drivers can look up their vehicle identification number (VIN) at either NHTSA or GM websites to see if their vehicle is part of the recall.
