2010 Pontiac Vibe Recalls
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 driver's side power window master switch may overheat and melt, causing a possible fire hazard.
The driver's front airbag may not deploy as expected in the event of a crash.
A poorly fitting driver's side floor mat may cause the gas pedal to stick, which could lead to uncontrolled acceleration. A stuck gas pedal can result in very high vehicle speeds, which may lead to a crash.
The accelerator pedal may become hard to depress while driving the car. If the pedal sticks while driving, it could lead to a crash.
In freezing weather, or extremely low temperatures, there may be an increase in stopping distance without warning. This could cause a crash.
