Chevy is now recalling their Cobalt cars due to faulty wiring in the driver’s side doors which may cause the air bags to not deploy in the event of an accident. Furthermore, the recalled Cobalt’s are from the 2010 model year; 59, 474 are from the U.S. and another 13,950 are from Canada. According to General Motors, a faulty routed sensor wire is to blame for the malfunction. Thus far one crash has resulted in an injury due to the recall.
All Chevy Cobalt owners will be notified of the recall, and dealerships will inspect and replace wiring free of charge. This is not Chevy’s latest recall for Cobalt’s. Last year the company recalled Cobalt’s for faulty ignition switches, which could potentially stall the car or turn off airbags.
