WASHINGTON — General Motors is recalling 18,941 2013-'14 Chevrolet Camaros because the airbag warning label on the sun visor may peel off, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
"In the affected vehicles, the required airbag warning label on the sun visor may peel off," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "Thus, these vehicles fail to comply to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 208 'Occupant Crash Protection.' If the airbag warning label detaches from the visor, the driver and front seat passenger may not be warned of the risks of airbag deployment, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash."
GM said a "stop delivery" order was issued to dealers on September 19. The recall began on October. 28.
The affected vehicles were built from June 9, 2013 through September 6, 2013. Chevrolet dealers will inspect the label on each of the sun visors for proper adhesion. If required, the sun visor will be replaced.
"Because this inspection can easily be performed by the customer, and to reduce inconvenience, an inspection procedure will be provided with the customer letter," said GM.
If customers are uncomfortable performing the inspection or if the label has fallen off or started to peel, GM says the car should be brought to the dealership.
