General Motors (GM) has issued a global recall for 800+ vehicles equipped with the faulty Takata air bag inflators, citing concerns that the inflators may explode, posing a life-threatening risk to affected vehicle owners.
According to CNN, the recall affects 767 models of the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro, Sonic, and Volt, as well as the Buick Verano in the United States. Additionally, 101 vehicles, including the Chevrolet TRAX, are affected in Canada, while another 46 units are impacted in various other countries.
General Motors will replace the air bag component in the affected vehicles at no cost to the owners.
The recall adds to the ongoing saga of the Takata air bag recall, involving millions of vehicles worldwide equipped with defective inflators. Takata, the Japanese manufacturer, declared bankruptcy in 2017 following a series of unfortunate downturns. As reported by Incognito Blog earlier this year, BMW recalled around 90,000 vehicles due to similar concerns.
