Just because Coda declared bankruptcy that doesn't mean it's immune to recalls. The start-up electric carmaker is recalling 117 units of its Electric Sedan due to a problem with the side curtain airbags, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The side curtain airbags in the affected vehicles may have been improperly rolled. This could prevent the airbag from deploying in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Coda will begin notifying owners on Tuesday, and dealers will inspect and replace the affected airbags for free. The automaker is directing owners to contact their dealers for more information; they can also call NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.
