GM Takata Airbag Recall Kicks Off With 2.6M Trucks And SUVs

 Tuesday, February 9, 2021


Owners of General Motors vehicles can take some solace knowing a recall is officially under way for the first portion of trucks and SUVs the federal government said GM must recall, due to faulty Takata airbags.

This week, GM filed recall documents with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and said the campaign officially kicks off on March 1.

To be clear, the 2.6 million vehicles included in this recall aren’t in addition to the past recall order from the federal government.

Last November, the feds said GM must conduct a recall for 6 million trucks and SUVs that feature Takata airbag inflators. This is only the first batch of vehicles.

They include GM trucks and SUVs from the 2007-2014 model years.
