The US government’s Highway Safety Agency approves a request to recall four vehicles manufactured by General Motors in 2021 due to faulty air bag warning lights
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Friday that the cars in question include the Buick Envision, Cadillac CT4 and CT5, Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Corvette, Suburban and Tahoe, and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.
The government said 285,622 vehicles were affected by a software-related problem that could cause the air bag light to illuminate inconsistently and fail to notify the driver of the actual problem. Owners of vehicles included in the recall will be notified in writing by GM at the end of next month.
GM will update the vehicles’ software for free to fix the problem, the Detroit automaker told regulators last week.
NHTSA urges people to check open recalls of their vehicles at https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls. Owners must enter their 17-digit vehicle identification number, which is usually printed on state registration documents.
