GM to issue recall on new pickups with defective airbags
Posted on Monday, October 13th, 2014 at 11:33 am
Automaker General Motors (GM) is expected to issue yet another recall, this time to address an airbag issue in several recent pickup truck models, an article on the Buffalo News stated October 3.
GM explained that the driver side airbags in some 2015 GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado pickup trucks may malfunction because of a factory error in their Missouri plant. An electrical problem may prevent the airbag from deploying on impact. GM has notified dealers to temporarily halt the sale of the trucks while they figure out how to best address the problem.
GM has issued an especially large number of recalls this year, affecting almost 30 million vehicles from 71 unique cases of manufacturing errors or design flaws.
When the airbags malfunction in an event of an accident, people unfortunately may suffer physical and financial loss. In this tough situation, remunerations may be awarded to cover the cost of your medical treatment, personal property, and/or suffering.
