The fuel tank may not be properly protected in the case of an accident.  A protective plate at the front of the tank and a foam ring on the filler neck were omitted in manufacturing. This could result in a fuel leak and fire.

The passenger frontal air bag may not deploy in an accident, because the system that detects an occupant in the passenger front seat may malfunction. The system may mistake an adult for a child, which deactivates the air bag from deploying. This would result in increased risk of occupant injury.

RepairPal Expert Overview on January 12, 2017

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 passenger frontal air bag may not deploy as needed in a crash due to a fault within the Occupant Classification System (OCS). The OCS may not properly detect an adult in the passenger front seat, instead classifying the passenger as a child. When the OCS does this, it prevents the passenger frontal air bag from deploying, attempting to protect child occupants. As a result, there is an increased risk of injury to adult passengers.
