Body, Interior & Misc.,March 17, 2014
RepairPal Expert Overview:

Certain vehicles are being recalled because if a crash were to occur not requiring deployment of the front airbags, the head of an unbelted front seat passenger could hit the instrument panel, resulting in personal injury because the panel may not sufficiently absorb the impact. As of this writing, General Motors is still working on a remedy for this concern.

IMPCO Technologies installed a compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system as original equipment on certain 2011-2013 full size GM vans. These vans are being recalled because the electrical connector on the fuel shut off solenoid can corrode, causing the connector to overheat, increasing the risk of a fire. Both dealers and fleet operators will be performing the necessary updates to correct this concern. The corrections include: replacing the fuel shut off solenoid, fuel pump fuse, and adjusting the wiring routing.

The second stage of the dual-stage passenger airbag will not inflate in a severe frontal impact. Accordingly, the airbags do not meet the federal safety standards. In the event of a crash, an improperly deployed airbag will increase the risk of injury to the seat occupant. Dealers will replace the front passenger airbag to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 11302.
