    From Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

    Make: CHEVROLET Model: CRUZE
    Model Year: 2012
    Manufacturer: General Motors LLC Report Receipt Date: OCT 31, 2012
    NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V522000 N/A
    NHTSA Action Number: N/A
    Component: AIR BAGS
    Summary:
    General Motors is recalling certain model year 2012 Buick Verano, Chevrolet Cruze, and Chevrolet Sonic vehicles. The driver side frontal air bag has a shorting bar which may intermittently contact the air bag terminals.
    Consequence:
    If the bar and terminals are contacting each other at the time of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal airbag, that airbag will not deploy, increasing the driver's risk of injury.
    Remedy:
    General Motors will notify owners, and dealers will replace the steering wheel airbag coil, free of charge. The safety recall began on January 11, 2013. Owners may contact General Motors at 1-800-521-7300.
    Notes:
    This is General Motors recall number 12261. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

    This recall apparently only affects steering wheel air bags manufactured and installed during just a few weeks. Most of us will not be impacted.
