Following an internal investigation called for by new CEO Mary Barra, General Motors issued its second major recall in as many months. Among the 1.7 million vehicles included in the latest recall are more than 300,000 Chevy Express and GMC Savana full-size vans built at GM’s Wentzville, Mo. assembly plant. As KSDK reports:
“Unbelted front passengers in full-size Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana full-size vans can suffer serious head injuries because the material covering the passenger-side air bag doesn’t meet federal standards.”
Vans currently in dealership hands are ordered by the company to be held until a fix is found and installed. The recall follows a February recall on 1.6 million passenger cars for faulty ignition switches that could shut them off while in motion.
