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.
Notes: GM’s Recall Campaign Number is 11302. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
