The mechanisms that inflate the side curtain air bags may have a crack develop, resulting in one or both portions of the inflator ejecting into the passener compartment. This could cause increased risk of occupant injury.
The front strut mounting bearings in the front suspension may be damaged when impacting large bumps in the road. This can cause loss of vehicle control.
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
