- General Motors LLC (GM) called certain model year 2009-2014 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans manufactured January 27, 2009, through March 7, 2014 with a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds and less and equipped with front passenger air bags. In the affected vehicles, during a frontal impact below the air bag deployment threshold, if an unbelted front passenger’s head hits the instrument panel above where the passenger air bag is located, the panel may not sufficiently absorb the impact. As such, these vehicles fail to meet the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 201, “Occupant Protection in Interior Impact.” In the event of a crash below the air bag deployment threshold, an unbelted front passenger seat occupant has an increased risk of injury.
- GM issued a recall of certain model year 2012 Chevy Camaro, Buick Verano, Cruze, and Sonic cars. The driver side frontal air bag has a shorting bar which may intermittently contact the air bag terminals. If the bar and terminals are contacting each other at the time of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver’s frontal airbag, that airbag will not deploy.
- GM is recalling 6,213 MY 2007 Equinox and Pontiac Torrent vehicles for failing to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 212, “Windshield Mounting.” An incorrect primer may have been used when installing the windshield. The same primer may have also been applied to the liftgate glass and the side stationary glass. In the event of a crash, the windshield may not be retained to the extent required by the standard.
- 2005-2006 Chevrolet Cobalt passenger vehicles were not equipped with optional roof-mounted side impact air bags for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 201, ‘Occupant Protection in Interior Impact.’ In a crash, head impact protection may be inadequate.
- About 1,602 MY 2007 Buick Lacrosse, Chevrolet Impala, and Pontiac Grand Prix automobiles were recalled. The fuel tank is missing the adhesive layer that bonds the barrier layer to the outer shell of the fuel tank. With this condition, fuel and/or fuel vapors could seep out between the layers, increasing the risk of a fire.
- GM is recalling 17,676 MY 2007 Chevrolet Aveo passenger vehicles equipped with a 1.6L engine. During an NCAP severe frontal crash test, the fuel line in the engine compartment developed a fracture. In addition, the crash damage caused four short circuits in the fuse block, the combination of which allowed the fuel pump to continue running and fuel leaked onto the ground. If these conditions occurred in an actual crash, a vehicle fire could occur.
- GM recalled 794 MY 2005-2006 Buick Lacrosse, Rendezvous; Chevrolet MY 2004 Silverado, 2005 Tahoe, 2006 HHR, Malibu, 2005-2006 Trailblazer; Pontiac MY 2005 Montana and 2006 G6; GMC MY 2005-2006 Envoy, 2005 Sierra; and Hummer MY 2006 H3 vehicles originally built with cloth seats that were equipped with an automatic air bag passenger sensing system and later reupholstered with aftermarket leather seat cover kits. Testing has indicated that the aftermarket leather seat covers can cause the passenger sensing system to malfunction. If the passenger sensing system malfunctions, the front air bag on the passenger side may be disabled when it should be enabled, or enabled when it should be disabled. In either case, in the event of a crash that requires air bag deployment, a front passenger’s level of injury may be increased.
