GM is recalling certain model-year 2015 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, and GMC Acadia vehicles due to a manufacturing defect that may cause the driver’s air bag inflator to explode during deployment. An inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants, increasing the risk of serious injury or death.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on May 30, 2022. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 800-521-7300, Chevrolet customer service at 800-222-1020, GMC customer service at 800-462-8782, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will replace the driver’s air bag module.
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.
