DETROIT, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- U.S. automaker General Motors said defective rear axle cross pins and airbag sensors had prompted recalls of nearly 100,000 vehicles.
GM warned the axle cross pins on 2011 Cadillac Escalade EXT, Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado LD and GMC Sierra LD cars were not heat treated properly and could crack, leading directly to an accident.
No accidents had been reported to date, GM said. The recall involves 1,262 vehicles, the Detroit Free Press reported Thursday.
In addition, GM is recalling 95,927 Cadillac CTS vehicles from model years 2005-07 due to a problem with airbag sensors on the passenger side of the car.
The sensors could fail to recognize a passenger's presence and not deploy when needed, GM said.
Earlier this week, Isuzu Motors said it would recall 2,992 trucks, including vehicles made for GM, because oil pipe bolts were not properly secured.
The problem could result in oil leaks.
The Isuzu recall involves 2006-07 GMC W3500, W4500, W5500 and Chevrolet W3500, W4500 and W5500 vehicles, the newspaper said.
