NEW YORK (AP) -- General Motors Co. is recalling about 12,600 Cadillac XTS cars because of problems with the rear headrests, and 2,900 Buick Verano and Chevrolet Cruze and Sonic vehicles because of a problem with the driver's side air bags.
GM is recalling 12,626 2013 Cadillac XTS vehicles because the rear head rests may not lock into the upright position after they are folded forward. If the restraint is at its lowest position and falls forward, it won't meet federal height guidelines. The cars were made from October 2011 through this August. The recall began Monday, and GM said it will notify owners and dealers and replace the head restraints for free.
The company is also recalling 2,949 model year 2012 Buick Verano and Chevrolet Cruze and Sonics. It said the driver-side air bags in the cars may not deploy. GM will notify owners and dealers and will replace the air bag part free of charge.
