DETROIT (AP) – General Motors is recalling more than 98,000 older sports cars in the U.S. and Canada because a faulty sensor can disable the front passenger air bag.
The recall covers the 2006 to 2010 Pontiac Solstice and the 2007 to 2010 Saturn Sky. The two-seat cars are no longer made and both brands have been scrapped by the company.READ MORE: ACLU Sues Michigan State Police, Claims Racial Profiling, Black Drivers Pulled Over More
GM says in government documents that a sensor that determines if a child is sitting in the passenger seat can bend and become damaged over time. That can open an electrical circuit, causing the car to turn off the air bag.READ MORE: Woman Finds 95-Year-Old Message In A Bottle In Michigan
The recall came after an owner petitioned the government seeking an investigation. GM has not yet developed a repair and says it will notify owners when one is ready.MORE NEWS: Here's A List Of Bills Gov. Whitmer Signed Into Law Thursday
