GM Recalls Vehicles for Sun Visor Warning

25 Nov

by Ken Davidson

General Motors will be recalling over 18,000 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Camaro vehicles due to a “safety defect.” The automaker notified the NHTSA in September 2013 that:

General Motors has decided that certain 2013-2014 model year Chevrolet
Camara Coupe vehicles may fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 208
for Occupant Crash Protection. These vehicles were built with one or two sun visors that
may have air bag warning labels that were not properly adhered See the full recall letter here

The gist of the recall: Warning labels attached to sun visors may peel.

General Motors also stopped production of Chevrolet Camaro’s due to the defect.

Crown Point Man Seriously Hurt in Roll Over

22 Oct

Lake County-A Crown Point was seriously injured this morning when he rolled his vehicle over numerous times on I-65.

Preliminary investigation by Senior Trooper Fred Trammel revealed that at
approximately 10:51 a.m., this Tuesday, October 22, 2013, morning, a 2007
Chrysler PT Cruiser, driven by Brett Novelli, 18 of Crown Point was south
bound on I-65 just north of the I-65 scales (one mile north of the Lowell exit)
in the left lane when he went off the road to the left for unknown reasons.
Novelli overcorrected, went back across south bound lanes, off the road to
the right and his PT Cruiser rolled over numerous times coming to rest in
the grassy ditch.

Novelli was taken to Saint Anthony’s Hospital in Crown Point with serious injuries.
The PT Cruiser was totaled.
