Camaro recall for airbag issue

General Motors is recalling 3,896 cars for airbags that may not deploy in a crash and an additional 8,519 cars for loose suspension bolts, according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Certain 2012 models of the Chevrolet Camaro, Cruze and Sonic and the Buick Verano may have shorting bars inside the steering wheel -- a flexible metal strip designed to complete a circuit -- that can contact the terminals of the airbag and prevent it from deploying. Dealers will replace the steering-wheel coil, which GM says will eliminate any contact between the airbag parts, starting Feb. 13. The recall extends a November recall of 2,949 Verano and Cruze models for the same problem.

Bolts holding the rear suspension components together may loosen on the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu, which can "lead to sudden changes in vehicle handling," GM said. In total, 8,519 cars are affected. Dealers will tighten the bolts if needed, although GM did not specify a start date. In May 2012, GM recalled 4,304 Malibus to reprogram the airbag system's control module.
