2015-'16 Chevrolet Sonic, Trax Recalled To Update Radio Software

WASHINGTON — General Motors is recalling 18,780 2015-'16 Chevrolet Sonic and Trax vehicles to update the radio software, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The 2013-'15 Chevrolet Spark is included in the recall.

The affected vehicles are equipped with a Bring Your Own Media radio.

"The affected radios may fail to provide an audible warning chime when the driver fails to fasten their seatbelt or if the driver leaves the key in the ignition," NHTSA said in its recall summary. "Without audible indicators, the driver may not fasten their seatbelt, increasing the risk of a crash."

There are "no incidents" in the field, GM told federal safety regulators.

Chevrolet dealers will perform the repair for free. A date has not been set for the recall. Owners can contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020.

Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should wait for their official recall notice and then schedule a service appointment with their dealer. But if you have an immediate concern, it's best to contact your dealer now.
