GM recalls 33,000 cars in U.S., Canada over defective air bags

Japan Economic Newswire |

General Motors Co. said Thursday it is recalling about 33,000 of its 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Cruze cars in the United States and Canada due to faulty air bag inflators.

The recall, which involves about 29,000 units in the United States, is due to a defect in which air bags are unlikely to inflate in the event of a collision. The air bags were made by Japanese manufacturer Takata Corp.

The announcement by the U.S. automaker follows similar recalls by Japanese automakers covering around 2.92 million vehicles globally due to defective air bag inflators. The defect is different from that in the GM vehicles.
