General Motors SUVs

DETROIT — General Motors is recalling nearly 1.2 million SUVs for defective side air bags.

The company said Monday that it is recalling the SUVs, including Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia, because their side air bags might not deploy.

Affected are the 2008-13 Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia; the 2009-13 Chevrolet Traverse; and the 2008-10 Saturn Outlook. The 2009-14 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana commercial vans are involved in another recall.

GM also announced recalls of 2013-14 Cadillac XTS sedans because a plug in the brake assembly can get dislodged and short, increasing the risk of an engine compartment fire.

Fiat 500L

DETROIT — Chrysler Group is recalling 18,092 of its 2014 Fiat 500L cars in the United States because the transmission shifter can be delayed or stop working.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says cold temperatures can affect signals sent between the car’s main computer and the gear shifter. The shifter might not shift out of park or the response might be delayed, increasing the risk of a crash.

Fiat dealers will replace the shifter module and update the software starting next month. The company will notify owners.

Honda Odyssey

DETROIT — Honda Motor Co. is recalling 886,815 of its 2005-10 Odyssey minivans in the U.S. because a fuel pump cover can deteriorate and cause a fuel leak, increasing the chance of a fire.

NHTSA says the cover on the fuel pump strainer can wear down from exposure to high temperatures and acidic chemicals, like those found in fertilizers.

Honda dealers will repair the vehicles for free, but the company says replacement parts might not be available until this summer. It will notify owners next month.
