For vehicles equipped with aftermarket accessory seat heaters, the seat heater elements in the front seats may short circuit if they are damaged by the seat cushion being compressed over time. This could result in a fire hazard.
The side curtain air bags that protect occupants in a crash may deploy unexpectedly when not needed. This can increase risk of occupant injury.
When deployed due to a crash, the passenger front air bag can deploy abnormally, or with excessive force, causing debris and fragments to strike and injure occupants.
Certain vehicles are being recalled because the passenger airbag inflator may rupture upon deployment. Vehicle occupants could be struck by metal fragments resulting in personal injury.
Certain vehicles are being recalled because the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator may rupture upon deployment. Vehicle occupants could be struck by metal fragments resulting in personal injury.
The load carrying capacity modification label may be missing.
The front lower ball joint may wear prematurely, causing increased steering effort and possibly noise in the front suspension. If the vehicle is continually driven, the ball joint may separate and cause a loss of vehicle control.
The manual on/off switch for the front passenger airbag does not meet the federal airbag standard.
The passenger airbag indicator may not properly display the status of the front passenger air bag. As a result, the front seat occupant will not be made aware of whether or not the airbag is activated or not.
