Update: Read the full Recall Alert here.

Original Post: General Motors has just announced a recall of approximately 780,000 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 compact cars from the 2005-2007 model years. Early reports indicate that there have been six fatalities due to the problem that can lead the cars in question to lose power and deactivate airbags.

We'll have more on the recall later today. More information can be found on USA Today here.
