Millions of GM vehicles with potentially defective airbags and seatbelts recalled
Approximately 4.3 million General Motors (GM) vehicles are being recalled due to airbags and seatbelts that could malfunction during use and cause serious injuries to occupants, a report of USA Today stated on September 10.
The recall affects GM vehicles that have computer sensor units that may potentially prevent the airbags from deploying when needed. GM reportedly decided to issue the recall after the problem was cited in an accident that resulted in 1 fatality and three injuries. The software problem could also result in malfunctioning seatbelts. If the problem occurs, drivers are at high risk of sustaining serious injuries when involved in car accidents. GM reported that they will coordinate with recalled vehicle owners for the free software update needed for their vehicles.
