Chevrolet Equinox RecallsFront Seat Mounted Side Air Bags Inflators Rupture
The front seat mounted side air bag inflators may rupture and spread metallic debris through the passenger compartment, possibly causing occupant injury or death. Dealers will replace the side impact air bag modules free of charge to resolve the concern.
The driver's and/or passenger's seat may suddenly drop to its lowest position because a bolt securing the height adjuster can fall out. This unexpected movement of the driver's seat could cause a distraction, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the height adjuster bolts in both front seats to correct this concern.
Certain vehicles originally sold in, or currently registered in, the states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma, or Texas are being recalled because the plastic supply or return port on the fuel pump module may crack, resulting in a fuel leak.
