EU rapid alert system

  • Risk level: 1

  • Rapex alert: A12/1207/14

  • Date of the problem: 08/08/2014

The frontal passenger-side inflators could create excessive internal pressure during air bag deployment after long-term exposure to high absolute humidity environments. In a worst case scenario, the inflator may rupture, possibly causing injury. Even if the inflator does not rupture, due to the specific design of the frontal passenger-side airbag module with its integrated inflator, excessive internal pressure of the inflator could potentially result in an increased risk of airbag-induced injuries in a deployment event.

  • Rapex alert: A12/1569/15

  • Date of the problem: 11/12/2015

The inflator of the driver’s airbag may rupture when the airbag is activated if it has been exposed to high humidity over a number of years. If the inflator ruptures, metal parts may be expelled and cause serious or even fatal injuries.

EU rapid alert system

  • Risk level: 1

  • Rapex alert: A12/0266/17

  • Date of the problem: 03/03/2017

If the driver’s airbag is deployed, the inflator might burst if it was subject to high air humidity, high temperatures and substantial temperature fluctuations over a number of years. This may result in the ejection of metal parts, which could cause injury or death to the driver and the passengers.
