GM Airbag Failures

General Motors is recalling over 3.6 million vehicles in the U.S. due to an airbag defect linked to at least one death and three serious injuries. The GM airbag software defect can cause the airbag to keep from deploying during a crash. This recall is unrelated to the ongoing widespread Takata airbag recall that affects more than 20 million vehicles from more than a dozen manufacturers. These GM air bag modules were supplied by Delphi Automotive at a plant in Kokomo, Indiana.

The 2016 GM airbag recall includes the following trucks, cars, and SUVs:

  • Buick LaCrosse (model years 2014-2016)
  • Chevrolet SS (model years 2014-2016)
  • Chevrolet Spark EV (model years 2014-2016)
  • Buick Encore (model years 2014-2017)

  • Chevrolet Tahoe (model years 2015-2017)
