1.18 million GM SUVs with airbag issues added to recall

Millions of older model SUVs made by General Motors (GM) were recently included in a recall due to airbags and seat belts that may malfunction, an article published by Fox News on March 18 stated.

At least 1.18 million older models of the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook SUVs are affected by the recall. Reports state that the airbags and seat belts of these SUVs can fail to deploy if drivers ignore the airbag warning signal located on their dashboard.

GM said the recent inclusion of these SUVs in the massive recall issued last month is part of their move to inform consumers that they are addressing the safety issues in their vehicles. In February GM issued a massive recall of vehicles with defective engine switches that had been linked to several fatal crashes.
