The occupant restraint control (OCR) module may malfunction and prevent deployment and proper operation of safety restraint devices such as the frontal air bags, seat belt pretensioners and side air bags in the event of an accident. This could increase risk of injury.
Multiple fasteners that secure chassis components may not be tightened properly. This could allow components to loosen and possibly fail or fall from the vehicle, resulting in a loss of vehicle control. This could cause a crash.
The 9-speed transmission may unexpectedly shift to neutral due to a wiring issue. This would result in increased risk of a crash.
A hydraulic pump within the transmission could seize and fail, causing the transmission to stop functioning. This would prevent the vehicle from moving, and could result in an accident.
When the passenger front air bag is deployed in an accident as needed, it may strike the passenger sun visor. This can cause the visor to be propelled rearward, resulting in increased risk of occupant injry.
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
The seat backs of the third row seats may loosen and end up separating from the seat frame. This could cause injury to occupants sitting in or around those seats.
When the vehicle transmission is not in the park position and the vehicle door is open, there may not be adequate warning from the vehicle, resulting in an occupant feeling safe to exit the vehicle while not shifted into the park position. This could result in the vehicle rolling away unexpectedly, increasing risk of injury.
If service work has been completed requiring replacement of the passenger seat cushion or Occupant Classification Module, the front passenger air bag may not deploy properly. This could result in risk of serious injury in an accident.
The inflator that deploys the driver's frontal air bag in the event of an accident may rupture and spray metal fragments onto vehicle occupants. This can increase risk of serious injury or death.
