The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced a new batch of recalls, and 6,845 GM vehicles are on the list for the same malfunction. They are: the 2012 Buick Verano (717), Chevrolet Camaro (429), Cruze (3,925) and Sonic (1,774).
According to the NHTSA, the vehciles’ featured dual-stage driver’s airbags have a “shorting bar” that could occasionally touch the terminals for the airbag’s primary stage. This may cause the airbag from deploying during a crash, potentially increasing the risk of injury. GM claims to have no reports of crashes or injuries resulting from the issue. But as per usual, local dealers will replace the airbag coils in the steering wheels of the affected cars, free of charge.
