DETROIT — General Motors is recalling about 500 2014-'15 full-size pickup trucks and SUVs because of defective airbags.

A stop-sale has been issued to dealerships until repairs can be made.

GM Spokesman Alan Adler told Edmunds on Tuesday that he could not identify the specific vehicles by year/make/model at this point.

The vehicles are being recalled "because of a potentially faulty supplier part in the sensing and diagnostic module that controls the vehicle airbags," said GM in a statement. "These specific vehicles are on stop-sale at dealerships until repairs can be made. No other similar vehicles are affected.

"The announcement of this recall demonstrates GM's commitment to quickly identifying recall conditions to minimize the impact on customers."

Adler said the automaker is unaware of any crashes or injuries "as only a few have been delivered to customers."

"If they had the defect, they would get an airbag warning light when they turned on the vehicle," he added.

Edmunds says: GM is referring to this as a "pre-announcement" to give consumers a heads-up. We will provide more specific information as it becomes available.
