More GM Recalls: Air Bag Problems and More



General Motors announced a recall of more than 89,000 vehicles due to air bag defects and other problems.  It is recalling 31,520 Buick Verano and Chevrolet Camaro, Cruz and Sonic cars due to the danger of airbags not deploying during an accident. One such incident occurred where one person was hurt because of the failure of the airbag to deploy during a crash. 
In addition GM is also recalling 57,512 other autos because of an issue of a possible failure of a sound alert when a door is opened and the key is still in the ignition.  The recall is for Chevrolet Silverado LD and the GMC Sierra LD. The problem stems from a base radio that sounds the warning not operating correctly.
These recent recalls follows GM's major recall of 2.6 million cars since February over ignition switch problems. This flaw has been linked to at least 13 deaths and has created much consumer outcry over GM's delayed response to this technical problem.
