GM recalls more than 7,100 older sports cars due to air bag issue

(CP) - General Motors is recalling more than 98-thousand older sports cars in North America, including more than 71-hundred in Canada, because a faulty sensor can disable the front passenger air bag.

The recall covers the 2006 to 2010 Pontiac Solstice and the 2007 to 2010 Saturn Sky -- two-seat cars that are no longer being made.

G-M says a sensor that determines if a child is sitting in the passenger seat can bend and become damaged over time -- which can cause the car to turn off the air bag.

The automaker says it has not yet developed a repair and says it will notify owners when one is ready.
