GM announces Cobalt recall
WASHINGTON (AP) General Motors Corp. said Wednesday it was recalling more than 98,000 Chevrolet Cobalt small coupes to upgrade head impact protection.
GM said the recall affects 98,707 vehicles from the 2005-06 model years that are not equipped with optional roof-mounted side impact air bags. The issue was discovered during compliance testing.
There have been no injuries related to the recall. GM spokesman Alan Adler said the head impact protection would only be an issue for motorists not wearing a seat belt. Belted motorists would not be affected, he said.
Dealers will install energy-absorbing plastic to the area, the company said. Owners can contact Chevrolet at (800) 630-2438.
