Vehicles Affected: Approximately 31,520 model-year 2012 Buick Verano and Chevrolet Camaro, Cruze and Sonic cars. This is an expansion of a previous recall.
The Problem: A defect inside the driver's side front airbag terminal could cause the airbag not to deploy in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. The air bag warning light will illuminate in affected vehicles.
GM said it's aware of one crash and subsequent injury related to this problem as well as other non-airbag deployment crashes, but the automaker cannot confirm if the latter crashes are related to this recall.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the steering-wheel airbag coil for free.
What Owners Should Do: General Motors has not yet provided an owner notification schedule but did say courtesy transportation would be provided as needed. Owners can call Buick at 800-521-7300 or Chevrolet at 800-222-1020 for more information.
