Cruze included in latest GM recalls

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT - Just one day after General Motors told customers and investors to expect more recalls, the automaker announced three safety recalls and one non-compliance recall.  The Lordstown made 2012 Chevrolet Cruze is included in the recall.

GM is recalling:

57,512 model year 2014 Chevrolet Silverado LD, 2014 GMC Sierra LD and model year 2015 Silverado HD, Tahoe and Suburban and 2015 GMC Sierra HD and Yukon and Yukon XL models because the base radio may not work, preventing audible warnings if the key is in the ignition when the driver’s door is opened. Nor would there be an audible chime if a front seat belt is not buckled. If they had this condition, the trucks would be out of compliance with motor vehicle safety standards covering theft protection, rollaway protection and occupant crash protection. Dealers will reprogram the radio control module free of charge. GM is unaware of any crashes or injuries related to this condition.

31,520 model year 2012 Buick Verano and Chevrolet Camaro, Cruze and Sonic compact cars for a defect in which the shorting bar inside the dual stage driver’s air bag may occasionally contact the air bag terminals. If contact occurs, the air bag warning light will illuminate. If the car and terminals are contacting each other in a crash, the air bag will not deploy. Dealers will replace the steering wheel air bag coil, which will eliminate contact any between the shorting bar and the air bag terminals. Repairs will be performed free of charge. GM is aware of one crash with an injury where the relevant diagnostic trouble code was found at the time the vehicle was repaired. The company is aware of other crashes where air bags did not deploy but it is not known if they were related to this condition. GM conducted two previous recalls for this condition involving 7,116 of these vehicles with no confirmed crashes in which this issue was involved.

61 model year 2013-2014 Chevrolet Spark and 2013 model year Buick Encores manufactured in Changwon, Korea from Dec. 30, 2012 through May 8, 2013 because the vehicles may have a condition in which the front passenger airbag end cap could separate from the airbag inflator. In a crash, this may prevent the passenger airbag from deploying properly. GM is unaware of any crashes or injuries related to this condition

33 model year 2014 Chevrolet Corvettes in the U.S. because an internal short-circuit in the sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) could disable frontal air bags, safety belt pretensioners and the Automatic Occupancy Sensing module. GM dealers will replace the SDM on the affected vehicles. GM is unaware of any crashes or injuries related to the condition.

In all cases, customers will receive letters from GM letting them know when they can bring their vehicles into a dealership, where all repairs will be performed free of charge and courtesy transportation would be provided as needed.
