Remedy
Gm will notify owners, and dealers will reflash the sdm software. vehicles that have had a previous air bag deployment will have the sdm replaced. these repairs will be performed free of charge. the recall began on october 13, 2016. owners may contact buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006, chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, or gmc customer service at 1-800-462-8782. gm's number for this recall is 16007.
