Faulty Airbags Prompt Recall At GM

2014-17 vehicles affected

GM is recalling four-million vehicles worldwide to fix an airbag software defect that has been linked to one death. In rare cases, the car’s computer can go into test mode meaning the front airbags will not inflate and seatbelts may not function. GM will notify customers and update the software for free. The recall involves:

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