The Detroit Information reviews GM will recall 1.7 million autos for new safety issues. The lion’;s share comes from 1.3 million 3-row crossovers, including some but not all Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and now-defunct Saturn Outlook SUVs from 2008 to 2013. Side airbags, front-center airbags (later on designs) and seat belt pretensioners may not deploy in these cars if drivers have ignored the illuminated services airbag warning light in excess of time. GM will also recall 354,000 2009-14 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana complete-dimension vans for instrument panels that will not meet security standards to protect unbelted passengers, as effectively as 66,200 2013-14 Cadillac XTS sedans for brake-booster corrosion that could trigger a fire.
