2011 GMC Yukon XL 1500 Recalls
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 engine may shut off unexpectedly resulting in loss of engine, steering and braking power.
The intermediate steering shaft attaching bolts may be loose. The driver could experience a loss of steering ability, increasing the risk of a crash.
The rear axle may fail without warning. This can reduce vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
