Front Air Bags May Not Deploy In A Crash

Recall Details

The front air bags may not deploy as needed in a crash, and the air bag system warning light may fail to function. Dealers will reprogram the SDM module that controls these functions free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The front air bags may fail to deploy in a crash due to fault in the module that controls them. The warning light that tells of a fault in the air bag system may also fail to illuminate.
