More recalls for GM
This time it is for side impact airbags on some SUV's and crossovers. It covers 2008-13 Buick Enclave and the GMC Acadia, along with the 2009-13 Chevrolet Traverse and the 2008-2010 Saturn Outlook.
I guess they are also recalling 300,000 Savanna vans to rework the instrument panel with different materials to protect people that hit it when not wearing a seat belt. I don't see how people not wearing a seat belt is GM's problem

Oh sheesh. What the heck is going on with all these safety recalls? I already have had 2 on my 2014 Silverado fixed. 1) Switch for the power sliding rear window 2) The "big" safety recall with the exhaust manifold starting fires when idling or something like that.
I really hope this Cobalt (along with other models) doesn't do to GM what the ole Firestone fiasco did to Ford. But here in Georgia, the news is really starting to skewer GM...I just hope it doesn't sour the public's perception of GM.2014 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 4x4 | 2.5" level/lift | 275/70/18 Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac

Well GM really dropped the ball on the Cobalt recall and they are making sure that it wont happen again.. I dont think its a bad thing. Regardless of all the crash testing they do it just doesnt compare to real world scenarios IMO. So if they begin to get real world crash statistics immediately upon release of new model years, then its looked into a lot quicker before more people get hurt.. This doesnt mean that since there are more crashes at 80mph to limit the vehicles to 60mph though

Some more news: GM tells dealers to stop selling the 1.4L-gas Chevy Cruze and no reason is given.
