What are the defects?
Curtain shield air bag inflators are located in the driver and passenger side roof rails are composed of two chambers welded together. Some inflators could have a small crack in the weld area joining the chambers, which could grow over time and lead to separation of the inflator chambers.
What are the hazards?
One or both sections of the inflator could enter the interior of the vehicle. If an occupant is present in the vehicle, there is an increased risk of injury.
What should consumers do?
Involved vehicle owners will be contacted by mail advising details of this recall campaign.
