GM Issues Stop-Sale and Recall on Small Number of Midsize Pickups, Malibu

General Motors has issued a stop-sale order on a small number of Chevy Colorados, GMC Canyons and Chevy Malibu sedans. 

Roughly 1,750 vehicles are affected in total from the 2016 model year. According to a notice sent to dealers, these vehicles can experience a problem where the second stage of the driver’s airbag may not deploy properly in a high-speed crash. If this happens, the airbag won’t fill as quickly as it should, which could result in an injury.
