General Motors (GM) has announced a recall for several vehicles due to the presence of defective airbags.

The automaker is recalling certain model year 2016 Chevrolet Colorado, Chevrolet Malibu, and GMC Canyon vehicles. The front driver-side airbag may improperly inflate during second-stage deployment in the event of a high speed crash.

And improperly inflated airbag increases the risk of injury to the driver.

GM is including about 1,600 vehicles in its recall.

The manufacturer will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver side frontal air bag module, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about this can contact Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020 and GMC customer service at (800) 462-8782.
