Recall 14V788000

Side Airbags

Recall Details

The side curtain airbags use inflator tubes to move the gases that inflate the side airbags from the inflator to the airbag. These vehicles are being recalled because the inflator tubes may have been incorrectly manufactured. If this is the case the side curtain airbags may not deploy as expected, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will inspect and replace the left and/or right side curtain airbags to correct this concern.

Our Quick Take

The side curtain airbags may not perform as expected in the event of a crash
