General Motors Co. is recalling some four million vehicles around the world to fix a defect the company says has been linked to at least one death.
GM said Friday that in rare cases the computers in the vehicles may go into test mode – preventing the front air bags from inflating during a collision. In addition, seat belts may not function as well.
GM is notifying customers and said it will update the software at no cost.
The recall includes the following vehicles:
2014-2016 Buick LaCrosse, Chevrolet SS and Spark EV;
2014-2017 Buick Encore, GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Corvette, Trax, Caprice and Silverado; and
2015-2017 Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban and Silverado HD, GMC Yukon, Yukon XL and Sierra HD, and Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV
