The Los Angeles Times (1/31, Undercoffler, 692K) reports that General Motors has announced a pair of recalls. "The first recall is for 8,519 Chevy Malibu sedans from the 2013 model year." The NHTSA says one or more bolts in the vehicles' rear suspension may not have been fastened tight enough which could cause "sudden changes in the vehicle handling" which may lead to a crash. No injuries or crashes have been reported. "The second recall affects 3,896 Chevy Camaro, Buick Verano, Chevy Cruze and Chevy Sonic vehicles from the 2012 model year" which "have a problem with the drivers' airbag that can prevent it from deploying in the event of a crash." No injuries or crashes have been reported.
