GM recalling 89,000 vehicles

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

The automaker said Friday that 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.

The company said the shorting bar inside the car’s driver’s air bag may come into contact with the air bag terminals. If that happens during a crash, the air bag won’t deploy.

GM has already recalled 7,116 vehicles related to the problem.

GM also said Friday that it is recalling 61 model-year 2013 and 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.

General Motors Co. 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.

Since February GM has recalled 2.6 million cars because of an ignition switch problem that the company says is linked to at least 13 deaths. The problem affects older-model Chevrolet Cobalts, Saturn Ions and other small cars.

The flaw could result in the engine shutting off, disabling the power-assisted steering and brakes, making it difficult to control the car and deactivating the air bags.

Friday’s recalls are not related to that flaw.
