What Should You Do?

They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call. The General Motors recall number is 13284.
Certain vehicles are being recalled because the required airbag warning label mounted on each of the sunvisors may peel off. Without the warning label, front seat occupants may not know the risks of airbag deployment, increasing the risk of injury should they deploy during a crash. Owners will be instructed how to inspect the label. If necessary dealers will replace the sunvisor as necessary.
