DETROIT (WKZO) -- General Motors is recalling nearly 800-thousand older model vehicles because of a problem that could allow the engine and airbags, among other parts, to unintentionally turn off.

Reportedly there have been six front-seat fatalities as a result of airbags not deploying.  The cars affected are 2005 to 2007 model year Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 compact cars.

Additionally, GM reports knowing about 17 other non-fatal injuries as a result of the airbag not deploying.
