General Motors is recalling 5.9 million vehicles over a potentially dangerous airbag issue.
The recall applies to GM trucks and SUVs with model years from 2007-2014, including models such as Escalade, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, Sierra, and Yukon.
It’s part of the massive Takata airbag recall, which has affected over 100 million vehicles by 19 different manufacturers. Faulty airbag inflators have caused 18 deaths in the U.S., although none in GM vehicles.
General Motors ( $GM ) will recall 6 million vehicles after a U.S. safety agency concluded that they had potentially dangerous airbags.
A move that could cost the automaker $1.2 billionhttps://t.co/zkvLBGNbPJ
