General Motors Argentina continues to search for the owners of Classic and Celta sold between 2013 and 2017, which could have a malfunction of the driver’s airbag provided by the Takata company.
As there are still many who have not approached the official dealers of the brand to solve the problem, General Motors offers an economic incentive of 5,000 pesos for those customers who show up before March 31, 2022.
The problem of the aforementioned Chevrolets is that the airbag could suffer a rupture of the inflator located in the steering wheel of the vehicle in the event of a collision. This situation, in which the activation of the airbag system is expected, would cause the dispersion of metal fragments from its casing.
For this reason, through an official statement, Chevrolet and its network of dealers summoned a year and a half ago all owners of Chevrolet Celta models 2013 to 2016 and Chevrolet Classic models 2013 to 2017 to review and schedule the replacement of the airbag.

General Motos did not report the number of units that still remains to be verified, but the problem originally affected almost 100,000 Classic and Celta sold between 2013 and 2017.
In total, the recall affects 90,000 Chevrolet Classics produced between May 29, 2012 and December 1, 2016, with chassis DR100083 to HR123948, and just over 8,000 Chevrolet Celta produced between January 9, 2013 and April 22. 2015, with chassis DG224678 to GG101300.
