DETROIT (Reuters) -- General Motors said it is recalling 15,575 Cadillac, Buick and Chevrolet cars -- including Cadillac's new flagship sedan, the XTS -- to correct potential safety flaws.
The recalls, posted today on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Web site, involve 2,949 2012-model Buick Verano, Chevrolet Cruze and Chevrolet Sonic compacts with driver-side air bags that might not deploy in a crash, and 12,626 2013-model Cadillac XTS sedans with rear-seat head restraints that might not lock in position.
The problems could increase the risk of injury to occupants, NHTSA said.
GM said it will replace the steering-wheel air-bag coil on the compact cars and replace the head restraints on the Cadillac sedans.
GM dealers will provide the repairs free of charge.Contact Automotive News
