In addition to a new recall of 106 vehicles for a steering issue, General Motors has issued a second for a faulty roof rail airbag in certain full-size SUVs.
The problem: An assembly error caused the roof rail airbags to not be not reinforced at the correct points, which may puncture the airbag upon deployment and provide insufficient protection to occupants in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Vehicles affected: 2015 Chevy Suburban, Tahoe GMC Yukon and Yukon Denali XL models are affected by this recall.
Number of vehicles affected: Because the problem with the roof rail airbags was a simple manufacturing flaw, on 22 vehicles in total are affected.
The fix: GM said it will notify owners to schedule a service appointment with their dealer, who will repair the roof rail airbag carrier as necessary. GM says the first of the vehicles involved in this recall should be fixed in early September.
Contacts: Owners of affected vehicles may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC at 1-800-462-8782. Owners may also search GM recalls by entering their VIN number here.
