General Motors is recalling certain model year 2012 Chevrolet Camaro,
Buick Verano, Chevrolet Cruze, and Chevrolet Sonic vehicles. The
driver side frontal air bag has a shorting bar which may
intermittently contact the air bag terminals.
If the bar and terminals are contacting each other at the time of a
crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal airbag, that
airbag will not deploy, increasing the driver's risk of injury.
General Motors will notify owners, and dealers will replace the
steering wheel airbag coil, free of charge. The safety recall is
expected to begin on February 13, 2013. Owners may contact General
Motors at 1-800-521-7300.
