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 second row seat back may not latch properly, causing a risk of injury. The second row center seat is especially at risk.
The vehicle doors may unexpectedly unlatch when closed. This can result in occupant injury.
The system that detects the weight of a passenger in the passenger front seat may malfunction, resulting in the passenger frontal air bag being disabled during a crash. This would cause an increased risk of passenger injury.
The wheel lug nuts may crack and detach from the wheel lug studs, resulting in the potential that wheels may come off of the vehicle.
The power brake system may lose braking assistance, due to a hole wearing into a vacuum hose. This can result in extra braking effort, and could possibly result in an accident.
One or both flexible front brake lines can fail. This would result in reduced braking ability due to the brake fluid loss.
The system that monitors proper tire pressures may fail, due to a problem with the system locating and being able to properly monitor the sensors in each wheel. This can result in a warning for low tire pressure not occurring, and can result in unsafe vehicle operation.
If a turn signal light malfunctions, it may not show a proper warning to indicate a problem to the driver. This would typically be shown by a fast flashing turn signal when activated. This could lead to a safety issue.
The driver and/or passenger side seat air bag may not deploy as expected in the event of a crash. This would increase risk of occupant injury.
