Chevrolet Sonic, Spark and Trax models are being recalled to update their radio software.
The recall affects a total of 18,780 units and include the 2015-2016 Chevrolet Sonic and Trax, as well as the 2013-2015 Chevrolet Spark.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the affected vehicles are equipped with a “bring your own media” radio that fails to provide an audible warning chime when the driver doesn’t fasten their seatbelt or if they leave the key in the ignition. “Without audible indicators, the driver may not fasten their seatbelt, increasing the risk of a crash,” NHTSA said.
