GM recalled 3,640,162 of its domestically-produced vehicles because of a potential issue that could arise from frontal airbag deployments in crash-related accidents.

The recall was officially filed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in September of 2016. The owners of the brands or models affected by the issue could be eligible to bring an HTML1-related airbag defect suit.

The primary reason for the recall was that a sensor in various GM vehicles from the years 2014 to 2017 was failing to trigger both seat belt tension and the inflation of the frontal airbags.

The problem was caused by the module entering the testing mode with no prompt or cause randomly. The vehicles, trucks, and SUVs as well as special vehicles that are susceptible to this problem and recall include:

2014-2016 Buick Lacrosse, Encore, Chevrolet Spark EV & SS

2014-2017 Chevrolet Corvette, Silverado 1500, Trax, Caprice Police Pursuit Vehicle, GMC Sierra 1500, Buick Encore

2015-2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD & 3500 HD, Tahoe, Suburban, GMC Sierra 2500 HD & 3500 HD, Yukon, Yukon XL, Cadillac Escalade & Escalade ESV

The filing of a lawsuit involving airbag malfunctions is a crucial method of holding the massive car manufacturer accountable for the release of a defective product that is on the market and whose is faulty and could cause loss of life or serious injuries.

GM had the ability to detect the problem thanks to the determination of an employee that discovered a collision involving 2014.
