Vehicles Affected: Approximately 550 model-year 2003-04 Pontiac Vibe hatchbacks equipped with a front passenger airbag assembly replaced under a prior recall
The Problem: The replacement airbag may not unfold as designed during inflation in high-temperature conditions, possibly resulting in the airbag not inflating properly, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the passenger airbag module, as necessary, for free.
What Owners Should Do: Pontiac manufacturer GM will begin notifying owners March 9. Owners can call the automaker at 800-762-2737, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
