GM Chevrolet Spark Recall

In a separate recall, GM recalled 50,371 Chevrolet Spark subcompacts due to software problems that may cause safety warnings not to work. 

GM stated, the Chevrolet Spark cars from 2014 and 2015 models were recalled because of the radio software’s potential to malfunction whenever an individual is also using the OnStar navigation system.  These malfunctions can cause the radio display to go blank and disable safety warnings such as the key left in the ignition and the driver has not fastened a seat belt warnings.

As of right now no injuries or crashes have been reported in relation to the issues in the Spark models. The majority of the Spark vehicles are in the United States.
