Air bag defects lead to GM vehicle recalls

BLADE STAFF AND NEWS SERIVCES

NEW YORK — General Motors Co. is recalling more than 89,000 autos because of air bag defects and other problems.

The automaker said Friday it is recalling 31,520 model year 2012 Buick Verano and Chevrolet Camaro, Cruze, and Sonic compact cars because the air bags might not deploy. GM said at least one person was hurt in a related crash.

GM is also recalling 57,512 other autos because the base radio may not work. That part sounds a warning if the key is in the ignition when the driver’s door is opened or if a front seat belt is not buckled. The recall affects 2014 model year Chevrolet Silverado LDs, 2014 GMC Sierra LDs and 2015 Silverado HDs, Tahoes, Suburbans, GMC Sierra HDs, Yukons, and Yukon XLs.

GM also is recalling 61 model year 2013-2014 Chevrolet Sparks and 2013 model year Buick Encores because of a passenger air bag defect and 33 model year 2014 Chevrolet Corvettes because a short circuit could disable air bags and also affect seat belts.
