Like today’s Cadillac XTS recall, the following news currently only affects Canadians. And it’s news that GM has issued a recall for the 2012 Buick Verano and 2012 Chevrolet Cruze and Sonic compacts. The issue relates to the driver-side airbag, and the total number of vehicles affected is roughly 500 in total.
The issue is that in the case of a collision, the driver’s airbag may not deploy from the steering wheel, which can lead to the highly increased risk of serious injury or even death.
As usual, dealers will replace the defective airbag coil in the affected vehicles free of charge to the consumer.
