DETROIT, Mich.– General Motors announced Friday they were recalling almost 4.3 million vehicles because of a software defect that could potentially prevent front air bags from deploying in a crash.

This flaw has been linked to one death and three injuries.

The recall includes 2014 to 2017 model years  models of the Chevrolet Corvette, Silverado 1500, Buick LaCrosse, Suburban, Silverado HD, Chevrolet Tahoe, and Cadillac Escalade.

This recall marks the latest in a massive, world-wide air bag-related recall by lead automakers.

The company stated dealers will update vehicle software to prevent future air bag and pretensioner malfunctions.

You can check if your vehicle is part of the recall at GM’s website.
