General Motors has recalled 33,000 of its most popular car, the Chevy Cruze, because of potentially defective air bag parts in what has become the latest in a long line of such safety recalls.
And, according to GM’s Chief Executive Mary Barra, there could be even more for the troubled auto giant.
In an interview today with NBC’s Today Show, Barra was asked whether the company could have more recalls. She replied “It’s possible.”
“We’re going to continue to look at the data that we get, and we’re going to take the action that we need. If we find an issue, we’re going to deal with it,” she said.
This year alone, the company has recalled more than 16 million of its vehicles because of safety concerns. The most troubling of them relate to 2.6 million of the company’s smaller vehicles that were equipped with faulty ignition switches. The defect has led to at least 13 deaths.
The latest Cruze recall covers 2013 and 2014 models that may have a faulty driver’s side air bag inflator that was manufactured by Japanese supplier Takata Corp.
