GM recalls thousands of Malibu, Colorado, Canyon, and Volt vehicles

General Motors has announced recalling 521,817 vehicles from all over the world. However, a specific date is unknown.

The procedure will be fulfilled in two stages. At first, 468,887 Chevrolet Malibu autos produced in 2011-2012, the majority of which are in the United States, will be recalled. In the cars, seat belts fail to perform their functions. As a result, there are 36 cases so far when people’s life and health were at risk when driving the Malibu. Serious injuries managed to be eluded. To fix the failure, an outboard lap mounting bracket or a lap pre-tensioner and steel cable will be replaced.

During the second stage, 52,930 Chevrolet Colorado (2015) and GMC Canyon (2015) cars expect to be recalled. They have incorrectly installed seat frame attachment hooks. Although GM hasn’t been informed of any cases of injuries caused by the problem, the automaker isn’t going to wait for one.

According to Automotive News, GM will also recall 64,000 Chevrolet Volt hybrids produced in 2011-2013 for software updating. Once the system is updated, there’s no threat of carbon monoxide accumulation if a driver doesn’t shut an engine down.

The source informs of two injury cases caused by the issue. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is notified of the recalls. 2,300 Chevrolet Trax and Buick Encore cars (2015) will also linger on dealer lots due to a problem with electric power steering.
