GM Issues Four New Recalls

Destiny Baker2 years ago

General Motors has issued four new recalls covering nearly 530,000 vehicles including late year Chevrolet Camaros and Buck LacRosses as well as older Chevrolet Saab and Sonic vehicles.

Multiple Crashes Linked to Recalled Camaros

According to the LA Times, GM has received multiple crash reports involving recalled Camaro vehicles in which airbags failed to deploy.

In their recall statement, GM states that drivers’ knees can hit the key fob of the recalled Camaros, causing the ignition switch to shift out of the “Run” position and into the “Off” or “Accessory” positions.

When this occurs, power to the engine is cut off, resulting in the loss of features such as power steering and airbag functionality.

While reminiscent of GM’s recall of 2.6 million vehicles equipped with a faulty ignition switches earlier this year, the automaker alleges that the two recalls are in no way connected.

Details of LaCross, Sonic and Saab Recalls

In addition to the Camaro recall, GM has recalled the following vehicles:

  • 2004-2011 Saab 9-3 Convertibles
    • 28,789 units recalled
    • Automatic tensioning system cables in the vehicles’ driver’s side front seat belt retractor can break.
  • 2012 Chevrolet Sonics with six-speed automatic transmissions and 1.8-liter four-cylinder engines.
    • 21,567 units recalled
    • Transmission turbine shaft may fracture.
  • 2014 Buick LaCrosse sedans
    • 14,765 units recalled
    • Wiring in the driver’s door may break, leading to electrical issues.
