General Motors has issued a recall that affects all four current GM brands with approximately 124,000 vehicles being recalled. The recall was issued due to a faulty seat weld.
According to USA Today, General Motors (GM) initiated recall due to a faulty seat weld that could separate in the event of a crash occurring. This fault can cause serious injury and death to consumers affected by the recall.
There have been no incidents reported of any problems occurring thus far.
There were 8 different vehicles subjected to the recall as told by General Motors (GM):
GM dealers have said that they will inspect the seat frames of the vehicles recalled to ensure proper welds are in place and, if needed, they will replace the lower seat frames.
GM has said that they expect less than 1 percent of the vehicles to be affected and need a replacement part.
This marks the sixtieth recall issued by GM this year, totaling 26.41 million vehicles.
The most significant recall issued by GM was that for 2.6 million vehicles equipped with defective ignition switches. According to GM, these switches could inadvertently shift out of the “run” position and into the “off” or “accessory” positions, leaving motorist without anti-lock brakes, power steering, and airbag functionality.
So far, GM has confirmed at least 13 deaths and dozens of crashes in connection with the ignition switch defect. The automaker is now working with attorney Kenneth Feinberg to payout settlements through a victims’ compensation fund.
