GM prepares to recall some Cruze sedans with Takata air bags

GMBY BERNIE WOODALL AND PAUL LIENERT – Detroit – (Reuters) June 26. 2014 – General Motors Co is preparing to recall about 33,000 Chevrolet Cruze sedans with potentially defective air bags made by troubled Japanese supplier Takata Corp, the automaker said late Wednesday.

In a crash, the driver-side air bag on the 2013-2014 Cruze could fail to inflate, GM said.

The issue is not directly related to other problems with Takata air bags that have led to the recall of about 10.5 million vehicles worldwide, many of them made by Honda Motor Co and Toyota Motor Corp, including 3 million earlier this week.
