General Motors is recalling more than 4 million vehicles worldwide so it can fix a software defect that may affect air bags and seat belts. Find out if your car is affected by the recall.

More than 4 million vehicles worldwide have been recalled by General Motors for an air bag software defect that in rare cases can have deadly consequences.

According to CBS News, at least one death and three injuries have been linked to the defect, which can prevent the vehicle’s front air bags from inflating after a crash. It can also prevent the vehicle’s seat belts from functioning properly.

Of the more than 4 million vehicles involved in this recall, 3.6 million are in the U.S.

In a letter to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, GM says the following vehicles and model years are included in the recall:

  • Buick Encore 2014-2017
  • Buick LaCrosse 2014-2016
  • Cadillac Escalade 2015-2017
  • Cadillac Escalade ESV 2015-2017
  • Chevrolet Caprice Police Pursuit 2014-2017
  • Chevrolet Corvette 2014-2017
  • Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2014-2017
  • Chevrolet Silverado 2500 2015-2017
  • Chevrolet Silverado 3500 2015-2017
  • Chevrolet Spark EV 2014-2016
  • Chevrolet SS 2014-2016
  • Chevrolet Suburban 2015-2017
  • Chevrolet Tahoe 2015-2017
  • Chevrolet Trax 2014-2017
  • GMC Sierra 1500 2014-2017
  • GMC Sierra 2500 2015-2017
  • GMC Sierra 3500 2015-2017
  • GMC Yukon 2015-2017
  • GMC Yukon XL 2015-2017

You can also use this VIN lookup to see if your car is involved in the recall.

This is the latest airbag issue GM has faced in recent years. In 2014, the automaker recalled roughly 2.6 million vehicles due to an ignition-switch defect that prevented air bags from deploying in some crashes.
