2013-2014 Chevrolet Camaro Recalled For Missing Airbag Labels

Follow Richard

General Motors has issued a recall for 2013 and 2014 models of the Chevrolet Camaro -- specifically, the Camaro Coupe. The recall affects 18,941 vehicles manufactured between June 9, 2013 and September 6, 2013. 

If you own one of those vehicles, though, there's no reason to panic. Unlike other recalls involving faulty brakes and fire-prone gas tanks, this one is slightly more bureaucratic in nature. 

A bulletin issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration explains that the Camaro recall stems from a problem with the required air bag labels attached to the sun visors: "If the air bag warning label detaches from the visor, the driver and front seat passenger may not be warned of the risks of air bag deployment, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash."

General Motors sent recall notices to Camaro owners earlier this week. The notices encourage owners to check their visor stickers and explain how to tell if the sticker is in danger of detaching. If it's loose -- or if it's already gone -- owners can take their vehicles to a Chevrolet dealer, who will replace the entire sun visor, free of charge. (Seems a little extreme, but whatever.)

For more information, call GM at 800-521-7300 and ask about recall #13284. If you like, you can also contact NHTSA at 888-327-4236 and inquire about campaign #13V463000.
