General Motors is recalling certain model-year 2008-2017 Buick Enclave and 2013-2017 Chevrolet Traverse vehicles due to airbag issues. Due to a manufacturer defect, the driver-side airbag inflator may explode during deployment, possibly resulting in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants and increasing the risk of injury.
GM will begin notifying owners on Nov. 22. Owners can call Buick at 800-521-7300, Chevrolet at 800-222-1020, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect and replace the driver-side airbag module, as necessary.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
