CARS.COM — Vehicles affected by service bulletin:

The problem: Due to its current collision-detection thresholds, the occupant classification system in the front passenger seat may interpret certain occupant seating usages or road conditions as a rear collision. This will illuminate the “Airbag Warning” and “Airbag Off” indicators and disable the front passenger airbag.
