(DETROIT) -- General Motors is recalling more than 47,000 of its 2011 Cadillac SRX crossovers in the United States because of a problem with the passenger-side air bags.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said Friday that one of the passenger-side airbags will not deploy if the car senses that the seat is unoccupied.
"GM dealers will reprogram the sensing and diagnostic module free of charge," the NHTSA said in an advisory posted on its website.
The recall is expected to begin around June 17.
