Recall 17V545000

Replacement Air Bag Inflator For Previous Recall May Have Been Improperly Installed

Recall Details

The passenger frontal air bag inflator replace during a previously issued recall may have been installed improperly by one dealership. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag module assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

For vehicles that have already had the passenger frontal air bag inflator replaced pursuant to a previously issued recall notification, the inflator may have been installed improperly upon replacement at one dealership. This could result in improper air bag deployment in the event of a crash, increasing risk of occupant injury.

They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
