The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said GM must recall 2007-2014 model year trucks and SUVs because inflators « are subject to the same type of explosion as other recalled Takata inflators after prolonged exposure to high heat and humidity. ”

History of about 63 million inflators. Around 100 million inflators have been recalled by 19 major car manufacturers worldwide.

The recall includes some Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Silverado, Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Sierra and GMC Yukon vehicles that were built over an eight-year period.
