RepairPal Expert Overview:

The passenger seat cushion contains a sensing device (occupant classification system, or OCS) to determine if a child safety seat is in use on that seat. The system is designed to turn off the passenger airbag when the system senses a child safety seat in use. These vehicles are being recalled because the system may not correctly classify a very light weight person and incorrectly disable the passenger airbag. This would increase the risk of personal injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the passenger seat cushion, including the OCS to correct this concern.
