GM recalls 400,000 pickup trucks for exploding side air bags –


DETROIT – The side air bags in some General Motors pickup trucks can explode without warning and spew parts into the cabin, according to a recent recall of more than 400,000 models in the U.S.

Owners of recalled 2015 and 2016 Chevrolet and GMC Sierra 1500, 2500 and 3500 trucks can have both side air bag modules replaced at dealerships, The Associated Press reports. Affected owners will be notified starting Aug. 16.

The defect was caused by moisture getting into the inflator during manufacturing; over time, the moisture caused corrosion, according to the company. U.S. safety regulator documents say three inflators have ruptures in 2015 Silverados in June, one in Florida and two in Texas. The trucks were unoccupied and no injuries have been reported.
