GM recalls 3.64 mln vehicles for air bag glitch

US General Motors Co. (GM) announced Friday to recall 3.64 million vehicles in the US as a software glitch may prevent front air bags from deploying.

There is a software defect in the sensing and diagnostic module that controls air bag and pre-tensioners deployment, which may prevent deployment of front air bags and pre-tensioners under "certain rare circumstances when a crash is preceded by a specific event impacting vehicle dynamics," the Detroit News quoted the U.S. automaker as saying.

Dealers will update the software for free.

Types of vehicles to be recalled this time are extensive, including certain models of the 2014-2016 Buick LaCrosse, Chevrolet SS and Spark EV; 2014-2017 Chevrolet Corvette, Trax, Caprice PPV and Silverado 1500 pickups, Buick Encore and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups; 2015-2017 Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban and Silverado HD; GMC Yukon, Yukon XL and Sierra HD; and Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV.
