428,211 of these vehicles are located in the United States, 57,706 are in Canada, and 20,956 are in other markets.

In its seemingly never-ending string of recalls, General Motors today announced four new campaigns covering some 506,873 vehicles. 428,211 of these vehicles are located in the United States, 57,706 are in Canada, and 20,956 are in other markets.

First up is the 2013-14 Chevrolet Cruze, which is being recalled because "the inflator in the driver's front airbag may rupture and/or the airbag may not inflate during airbag deployment," according to GM. This could shoot metal pieces of the inflator into the cabin, injuring occupants during a crash. What's more, GM says that if the airbag does not inflate, this could, obviously, increase the risk of injury to the driver. A total of 29,019 Cruzes are affected in the United States, with an additional 4,066 units being recalled in Canada.

The largest of the four recall campaigns involves four-wheel-drive versions of the 2014-15 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, as well as the 2015 Chevy Tahoe, Suburban, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. A grand total of 392,459 vehicles are affected in the US, with 53,607 more found in Canada, and an additional 20,874 in other markets. Here, the transfer case "may electronically switch to neutral without input from the driver," GM states. The automaker adds that if this occurs while the vehicle is moving, power will not be sent to the wheels. On top of that, if the vehicle is parked, it may roll away unexpectedly if the parking brake has not been set.

In smaller recall news, 4,794 2013-14 Chevy Caprice police cars and SS sedans are being recalled in the US. According to GM, "If the motor gear teeth become stripped, the wipers may not operate" in these models.

Lastly, 1,939 2014 Chevy Corvettes fitted with the FE1 or FE3 suspension are being recalled in the US "to repair a possible insufficient weld in the rear shocks that could lead to a fracture and/or reduce the shocks' service life." In Canada, 33 additional vehicles are affected, as are 82 more 'Vettes that were exported to other markets.

General Motors is aware of one injury regarding the Cruze recall, and is not aware of any crashes or injuries in the other three recalls. Scroll down for the automaker's official release.

GM Announces Four Vehicle Recalls

DETROIT – General Motors (GM: NYSE) today announced four safety recalls covering 428,211 vehicles in the United States.

Dealers will replace the driver's side air bag inflator in 29,019 2013-2014 model year Chevrolet Cruze sedans in the U.S. and 4,066 in Canada. The inflator in the driver's front air bag may rupture and/or the air bag may not inflate during air bag deployment. A rupture could propel metal pieces of the inflator into the vehicle cabin, possibly striking and seriously injuring the driver or other vehicle occupants. Additionally, if the inflator does not inflate the air bag, there is an increased risk of injury to the driver. GM is aware of one injury related to the issue.

Dealers will recalibrate transfer case control module software in 392,459 full-size pickup trucks and SUVs in the U.S. and 53,607 in Canada. An additional 20,874 were sold outside the U.S. and Canada. Affected are four-wheel-drive versions of the 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra; the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban; and the 2015 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.

In these vehicles, the transfer case may electronically switch to neutral without input from the driver. If this occurs while a vehicle is in motion, no power will go to the wheels. If the vehicle is stopped or parked, it may roll away if the parking brake is not set. GM is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to this issue.

Dealers will inspect, and replace if necessary, the windshield wiper module assembly in 4,794 2013-2014 model year Chevrolet Caprice police cars and 2014 Chevrolet SS sport sedans in the U.S. If the motor gear teeth become stripped, the wipers may not operate. GM is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to this issue.
Dealers will replace the two rear shock absorbers in 1,939 2014 model year Chevrolet Corvettes in the U.S. with the FE1 or FE3 suspension to repair a possible insufficient weld in the rear shocks that could lead to a fracture and/or reduce the shocks' service life. Thirty-three additional vehicles were sold in Canada and another 82 were exported. GM is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to this issue.

      I'm sorry but a defect such as a vehicle "may electronically switch to neutral without input from the driver" and lose power should be cause for serious alarm. What the hell are they doing at GM?!

      This is what happens when you get a bailout instead of actually having to suffer the consequences of not satisfying consumers. They haven't learned their lesson.

        Tons of people. Their May sales were great and I'm sure June won't be bad either. We saw this with Toyota and their recall madness. We the enthusiasts are just up in arms about GM and Toyota's massive recalls, but the sales suggest that people who are actually buying don't care nearly as much.

          I noticed in a prior post that you claim to own a Cruze. I have a lot of hope for that car. It seems to be a solid car with good looks. I like the fact that they are available with a diesel.

        I would. In this day and age we pretty much can't escape a recall. They are in almost all of the main stream brands. Some don't even get advertised in the blogs and news. So therefore if I like a GM product, I am gonna buy one. If I like a VW or a Honda or a Hyundai or a Toyota, I am going to buy one. Recall and reliability scare tactics can take a back seat.

          Except if there is a fatal flaw with the vehicle and GM knows about it... you won't.

      None of this matters. General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) dealers delivered 284,694 vehicles in the United States in May, up 13 percent compared to a year ago, marking the company’s best May in seven years and its best total sales since August 2008. General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) dealers delivered 254,076 vehicles in the United States in April 2014. Total sales were up 7 percent compared with a year ago. General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) dealers delivered 256,047 vehicles in the United States in March 2014. Total sales were up 4 percent compared with a year ago. Sales just keep getting higher and higher. Can't wait to see June's numbers.

      I like how "auto"blog only posts selective news on GM. Front page news everywhere yesterday was that Congress found out that current GM executive who is still with the company and in Barras right hand man was notified and was very much actively involved in a conversation about the ignition recall. Just so happens Matt Laurer asked Barra will she fire anyone else and she said no...KNOWING that the top executive who knew everything is still there. Oh yeah and Congress said they will issue soubpinaes finally. Tata GM, time to go to sleep............but you are not waiking up from this.

      It seems that GM is putting out the same crap that they have been building for years except that they are now forced to recall the crap instead of being indifferent.

      It's not GM's fault they ended up with faulty Takata airbags like the other manufactures including Mazda, Honda, Nissan, BMW, Chrysler, Ford, and Toyota.

        So your saying there was an airbag problem that caused the larges number of these recalls. "The largest of the four recall campaigns involves four-wheel-drive versions of the 2014-15 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, as well as the 2015 Chevy Tahoe, Suburban, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL." " Here, the transfer case "may electronically switch to neutral without input from the driver," GM states." Did you even read the article before running to GM's defense. I've read that GM buyers are less educated.

        the takata airbag problem has been around for close to 15 years. GM is sticking with a problem prone manufacturer. i saw an ex GM employee speaking about the companies unwillingness to make changes and adapt to developments. this certainly speaks to that, 15 years to find a different airbag supplier and they dont even bother.
