General Motors has issued a recall on certain mid-size crossover models ranging from the 2010 to 2019 model years, including the Chevy Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave, for an issue related to the passenger-side roof rail airbag bolts.
The problem: in affected vehicles, one or two of the weld nuts that secure the right-side roof rail airbag to the vehicle might have been damaged during the assembly process, or may be out of position or missing. If the roof rail airbag is not properly secured to the vehicle, the airbag may not perform as it was intended. GM has also issued an identical recall notice to address the same problem for the driver-side roof rail airbag bolts.
The hazards: the risk of injury in the event of a crash would be increased if the passenger-side roof rail airbag does not perform as intended.
The fix: dealers are instructed to inspect the passenger-side roof rail airbag attachments and install or replace any found to be missing, damaged or out of position.
Affected components: passenger-side roof rail airbag and roof rail airbag attachment bolts.
