Details

On certain vehicles, the driver frontal airbag inflator could produce excessive internal pressure during airbag deployment.

Increased pressure may cause the inflator to rupture, which could allow fragments to be propelled toward vehicle occupants, increasing the risk of injury.

This could also damage the airbag module, which could prevent proper deployment.

Failure of the airbag to fully deploy during a crash (where deployment is warranted) could increase the risk of personal injury to the seat occupant.

Correction: Dealers will replace the front driver air bag inflator or air bag module, depending on the vehicle model.
