Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS and FSA VIN Lists.
REASON FOR THIS SAFETY RECALL
In the affected vehicles, a defect may exist in the curtain airbag assembly. Due to an improper crimp, the air bag diffuser may detach from the inflator during air bag deployment resulting in the air bag not inflating properly, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.
DO NOT DEMONSTRATE OR DELIVER any new in-stock vehicles involved in this safety recall. A complete Dealer Bulletin will be provided to dealers in September 2020 when it is anticipated that parts ordering information and repair instructions will be available to support this safety recall.
IMPORTANT: Dealers should open a Repair Order (RO) only when a full dealer bulletin is published. Opening a RO against an Awareness or Advance Notice will result in warranty rejections against a recall.
Owners of record will be notified via first-class mail after repair instructions and parts ordering information have been provided to dealers.
Federal law requires dealers to complete this recall service before a new vehicle is delivered to the buyer or lessee. Violation of this requirement by a dealer could result in a civil penalty of up to $21,000 per vehicle. Correct all vehicles in your new vehicle inventory prior to delivery.
