Buick Encore RecallsSoftware Defect May Prevent Airbags From Deploying
If the airbag system is in a diagnostic test mode during a crash, the deployment of the frontal airbags and seat belt pretensioners will not occur. Dealers will reflash the system software. In the event the vehicle has had a previous airbag deployment, the airbag sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) will be replaced free of charge.
The ignition key may be able to be removed from the ignition switch without having the transmission shift lever securely in the park position. This could allow the vehicle to roll unexpectedly. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the key cylinder lock housing free of charge to resolve the concern.
The tire placards on the vehicle do not list proper wheel rim size. General Motors will send owners of affected vehicles a corrected label free of charge, and the owner can install on their own or seek dealers assistance for installation.
