DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – General Motors is recalling about 4 million vehicles worldwide to fix an air bag software defect that has been linked to one death.

GM says the defect is linked to at least one death.
The recall includes:
• 2014-2016 model year Buick LaCrosse and Chevrolet SS and Spark EV
• 2014-2017 model year Chevrolet Corvette, Trax, Caprice PPV and Silverado 1500; Buick Encore; and GMC Sierra 1500
• 2015-2017 model year Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban and Silverado HD; GMC Yukon,
GM will notify customers and update the software for free.
