General Motors is recalling and issuing a stop-sales order on about 1,750 2016 model-year Chevrolet Malibu sedans and Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks in the U.S. and Canada because of faulty air bag modules, Reuters reported.

In a notice sent to GM dealers, the automaker explained that in high-speed crashes triggering the second-stage deployment of the driver frontal air bag, the inflator may fail to fill the air bag as quickly and fully as designed.

More details about the recall will become available when the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issues the recall notice.
