Recalls: GM Cars, Trucks, Chrysler SUVs

The Problem: A shorting bar inside the driver's airbag may sometimes contact the air bag terminals, meaning that if the two are in contact during a crash, the airbag will not deploy. The airbag light will illuminate if the shorting bar contacts the terminals.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the steering wheel air bag coil, which eliminates the possibility of contact between the shorting bar and the terminals.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 31,520 2012 Buick Verano, Chevrolet Camaro, Chevrolet Cruze, and Chevrolet Sonic vehicles

The Problem: A problem with the standard radio may prevent a warning chime from sounding if the key is in the ignition when the driver's door is opened, or if a front seat belt is not buckled.

The Problem: When cruise control is engaged and the driver presses the accelerator pedal, the acceleration input may be extended by one second after the pedal is released before the speed returns to the set speed. This may extend to two seconds on high-performance Grand Cherokee SRT models.
