GM halts sales of 1,579 trucks, cars over possible airbag defect.

USA Today (3/9, Woodyard, 5.45M) reports that General Motors halted sales of 1,579 pickups and cars in the US “because the driver’s side air bag may not deploy correctly in a crash.” The article writes that GM said the defect is not related to the Takata recall. The article explains, for GM, “the fear is that the second stage of the airbag may not deploy properly under some conditions in high-speed crashes.”
        Reuters (3/9) reports that models include Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks and Chevrolet Malibu sedans. The article adds that the recall will also affect some models in Canada and Mexico
