Details

Manufacturer: General Motors LLC

SUMMARY:
General Motors is recalling certain model year 2014 Chevrolet Silverado trucks manufactured June 1, 2013, through June 30, 2013; and model year 2014 GMC Sierra trucks manufactured June 4, 2013, through June 30, 2013. Welding on the passenger airbag inflator may fracture when the airbag is deployed, allowing some gas from the air bag inflator to vent behind the instrument panel, instead of into the air bag.


CONSEQUENCE:
As a result the air bag may not fully inflate, increasing the risk of injury.

REMEDY:
General Motors will notify owners and dealers will replace the passenger air bag module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by July 30, 2013. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-866-694-6546 and GMC at 1-866-996-9463. GM's recall number is 13230.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153),
