Danielle Dougall2 years ago

About the General Motors Pick-up Truck, Cadillac, and Saab Recall

According to CNN Money, General Motors ordered dealers to stop selling their 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon mid-sized pickup trucks due to a wiring problem with the trucks’ airbag system. This problem could prevent the airbag from being deployed correctly when needed.

Only a few of the manufactured trucks are reported to have been sold to consumers and the rest are still in the factories. GM is working to produce a new type of airbag wiring that should address the current problem. Meanwhile, none of the defective Canyons or Colorados will be available on the market.

In addition, GM has confirmed that their model years dated 2010 – 2015 for the Cadillac SRX and 2011 – 2012 for the Saab 9-4X SUVs have had problems with their rear wheel attachment.

Description of Recalled General Motors Cadillac and Saab Cars

For the model year 2010 to 2015 Cadillac SRX and 2011 to 2012 Saab 9-4X SUVs, part of the vehicle that holds the rear wheel in position has been noted to easily separate, causing instability in the wheel and potential for a crash. GM has also announced their second recall due to a manufacturing error that can cause a hood latch to become stuck in the open position for the 2013 – 2015 Chevrolet Spark.

Incidents/Injuries

Three accidents and two injuries have been reported due to the aforementioned defective GM vehicles. Most of the 524,000 recalled vehicles are being recalled due to a defective rear wheel.
