GM Recalls 100,000 Vehicles Due To Axle, Airbag Issues

NEW YORK (AP) — General Motors Co. is recalling almost 100,000 vehicles to fix two problems that could cause the rear axle to lock and the passenger-side airbag not to work.

GM says in postings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that the airbag recall affects almost 96,000 2005 to 2007 model year versions of the Cadillac CTS.

The axle recall affects almost 1,300 2011 model year versions of the Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 and Silverado 1500, as well as the GMC Sierra 1500.

The axle recall is expected to begin in January. GM did not say when the airbag recall would begin.

    I’ll never buy another GM car. The motor on my 2005 Cad conked out again as I was making a left turn at an intersection. It cost me $1,500 to fix it again. I’m buying a Nissan just like my friends.

    Well, it’s nice to see that even after a taxpayer bailout, bankruptcy that GM is has still not shed the vestiges of the former General Motors Corporation. The new GM LLC is still the same old GM- a lousy car maker. Jesus.

    Its nice to know that On-Star will assist you after you crash because your axles locked up and the air bags did not deploy. I wonder if the president’s cadillac is also on the recall list. Looks like Mr. Goodshaft is doing it to us again, this time with our money

    The Caddy would have had more than 100K on it, or it would have covered by warranty. Sounds like a very low oil level. Proper maint. ?? How about the big Toyota recall ? Don’t be too quick to belittle american jobs and produts.
