GM Recall of Certain Model Year 2012 Chevrolet Express GMC Savana Vehicles

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—November 18, 2011.

Summary:  GM is recalling certain model year 2012 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vehicles manufactured from June 2, 2011, through October 17, 2011.  The second stage of the dual-stage air bag will not inflate in a severe frontal impact.  Accordingly, the air bags fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety No. 208, “Occupant Crash Protection.”

Consequence:  An improperly deployed air bag will increase the risk of injury to the occupant.

Remedy:   GM will notify owners, and dealers will install a new front passenger air bag free of charge. The Safety Recall is expected to begin during November 2011.  Owners may contact GMC at 800-462-8782 or Chevrolet at 800-222-1020.
