Vehicles Affected: Approximately 1.18 million versions of the 2008-2013 Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia SUVs as well as model-year 2009-2013 versions of the Chevrolet Traverse SUV and 2008-2010 models of the Saturn Outlook SUV.
The Problem: A problem with the wiring harness of the SUVs' seat-mounted side airbags could cause the service airbag warning light to illuminate. GM cautions that ignoring this light could eventually result in the non-deployment of the airbags and seatbelt pretensioners in a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will remove the driver and passenger side air bag wiring harness connectors and inspect and replace the affected parts for free.
What Owners Should Do: Owners can call GM at 800-521-7300 for more information.
