The air bags mounted in the sides of the front seats may not deploy when needed in an accident due to a failure of the igniters within the air bag assemblies. This would increase risk of occupant injury in a crash.
The steering gearbox may malfunction due to a manufacturing issue, resulting in a loss of vehicle control.
The front passenger seat cushion which contains a sensor that determines if there is an adult sitting in the seat may malfunction, and cause the passenger frontal air bag to be deactivated or activated for use at inappropriate times. This could cause increased risk of injury during a crash.
The power steering system may fail, resulting in extra effort required to steer the vehicle, and possibly increasing the risk of a crash.
The passenger frontal air bag may not properly deploy in a low speed crash, resulting in possible occupant injury.
Certain requirements for vehicle side impact protection were not met when the vehicle was manufactured. As a result, the rear seat passengers are at risk of injury from a side impact to the vehicle.
The passenger seat occupant sensor can malfunction, preventing the passenger side front air bag from deploying in a crash.
The placard on the vehicle indicating the maximum weight capacity that the vehicle can carry is incorrectly labeled.
Certain vehicles are being recalled because they fail to meet federal government side impact protection standards.
The transmission may have been programmed erroneously to allow the driver to exit the vehicle when it is not shifted to park. This could allow the vehicle to roll unexpectedly, resulting in injury or an accident.
