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 support stays that hold the lift gate in the open position may corrode and break, resulting in the lift gate falling from the open position. This could cause serious injury.
The wiring harness to the starter motor may have been improperly installed, resulting in the starter harness terminal to contact a heat shield. This could cause an electrical short and a risk of fire.
