GM recalls 500 pickups and SUVs for air bag controls; number of recalls hits 30 for year

ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT — General Motors is recalling about 500 pickup trucks and SUVs to fix faulty air bag controls, its 30th recall so far this year.

The company is in the midst of a companywide safety review after it mishandled the recall of more than 2.6 million older small cars with faulty ignition switches. GM has acknowledged knowing about the switch problem for more than a decade before it began recalling the cars in February.

GM says today’s recall covers full-size pickups and SUVs from the 2014 and 2015 model years. All 500 are still at dealerships and won’t be sold until repairs are made.

Since January, GM has recalled more than 13.8 million vehicles in the U.S. as it promises to respond faster to safety issues.
