What are the defects?

The automatic occupant detection for the front passenger seat in certain vehicles may not comply with specifications.

If a child seat is installed rearward facing in the passenger seat position, it is possible that the front passenger airbag might not be switched off as intended and could be triggered in the event of an accident. This could increase the risk of injury for a child in a rearward facing child seat.
