317 vehicles are being recalled because the seam in the side curtain air bag may not have been stitched correctly. As a result, the side curtain air bag may not deploy as expected. Failure of the air bag increases the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the left and/or right curtain air bag to correct this concern.

The aging of the plastic material in the fuel tank rollover valve, combined with stress from the aluminum ventilation line attached to it, may lead to cracking of the connection nipple.
