General Motors has issued a recall for certain examples of the 2020 to 2022 model year Chevy Traverse and Buick Enclave mid-size crossovers over an issue related to the roof rail airbags, which are often referred to as side-curtain airbags.
The problem: in affected vehicles, the harness connector for the left or right side roof rail airbag may have incompatible electrical terminals, which could prevent the airbags from deploying in the event of a crash.
The hazards: the risk of injury in the event of a crash would be increased if the driver-side roof rail airbag does not deploy as intended.
The fix: dealers will be instructed to inspect and, if necessary, replace the harness attachments for the roof rail airbags on affected vehicles. Recall parts are not currently available. When a sufficient quantity of parts is available, the recall bulletin will be officially released and dealers will be able to begin repairing vehicles
Affected components: driver-side roof rail airbag, roof rail airbag harness connector.
Number of affected vehicles: 89.
