GM Issues Recall For Two Pickup Trucks And A Sedan

Recall

It's an airbag issue, but it's not because of Takata.

General Motors has issued a recall and stop sale on 1,740 units of the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado, Malibu and GMC canyon. There are 1,579 affected units in the US and 161 in Canada. The project includes a second stage of the driver airbag inflator that might not be present. According to Reuters, if this is the case, the airbag won’t fill up as quickly as it should in the case of an accident, which could increase the risk of injury. This isn't the first time GM has recalled the trucks over airbag problems.

This is in no way related to Takata’s inflator problems as these parts come from a different supplier. So far, no injuries or deaths have been reported. GM will replace the cars’ airbag assemblies. There’s no word on when the recall repairs will begin, but we assume it should be relatively soon.
