Potential defective airbags and improperly tightened deadbolts prompted General Motors Co (GM) to announce a worldwide car recall. U.S. safety regulators agreed with the recall’s initiative to address the potential problems that could put those inside and in the vehicle’s way in danger.

According to the recall announcement made on Thursday, the manufacturer has not received reports of accidents or injury for either potential problem. They are recalling the vehicles as a preventive measure.

GM is recalling approximately 13,680 vehicles globally per documents filed with U.S. safety regulators. Of the global amount of vehicles being recalled about 8,519 year 2013 Chevrolet Malibu sedans from the United States are included. They may have one or more rear suspension bolts that may have not been tightened properly. Improperly tightened bolts can be dangerous because they may lead to loss of vehicle handling, which then increases the risk of a crash, per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Typically when a vehicle recall of this size is announced by an auto manufacturer and the NHTSA, it is because people could be put in unnecessary danger of injury or in more serious situations, death. There is also a high possibility that a defective vehicle could cause serious and expensive property damage at an unwarned time.

In Mexico, Canada and overseas, the auto manufacturer is recalling around 1.060 vehicles, per GM’s announcement.

Initial warning may include noise and slight handling issues. Over time the issues gradually get worse and without a warning uncontrollable vehicle handling may occur, stated NHTSA. Owners are already being notified by GM.

Along with the Malibu recall, GM is recalling another 3,896, year 2012 Chevy Camaro, Cruze and Sonic models in the United States; and in Canada around 205 vehicles. These vehicles are being recalled for having faulty airbags, per the government agency.

The airbag on the front driver’s side may not deploy when it is needed and can increase the chance of injury. This is because there is a shorting bar that may intermittently contact the airbag terminals, which interferes with the proper functions of the airbag. The recall is expected to begin on February 13 according to the NHTSA.

According to GM, the recall was an expansion from the one announced last fall.
