Just weeks after General Motors recalled more than 1.3 million vehicles due to a defective ignition switch, the company is withdrawing another 1.5 million SUVs, sedans and vans due to various vehicle defects.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the following makes and models are being recalled:
- 1.18 million SUVs including the 2008-2013 Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia; the 2009-2013 Chevrolet Traverse; and the 2008-2010 Saturn Outlook. The vehicles are being removed in order to fix wiring issues that could cause airbag and seatbelt pretensioner failure.
- 303,000 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana models from 2009-2014. The material on the instrument panel does not meet industry standards and could fail to prevent injuries during in accident if a passenger is not wearing their seatbelt.
- 63,900 Cadillac XTS models from 2013-2014 are being recalled because the brakes could overheat and cause a vehicle fire.
Despite General Motors’ claims that no reports or injuries related to the recalls have been reported, complaints to the NHTSA indicate that at least four people have been injured in auto accidents involving one of these recalled vehicles.
If you or a loved one has been fatally or non-fatally injured while driving, or as a passenger of, one of these defective GM vehicles, you may be entitled to file an airbag injury lawsuit.
