The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that General Motors has issued a recall for 843 model-year 2014 Chevrolet Silverado pickup trucks built between June 1, 2013, and June 30, 2013, and model-year 2014 GMC Sierra pickup trucks manufactured between June 4, 2013, and June 30, 2013.
The automaker said the welding on the passenger-side airbag inflator could fracture when the airbag deploys, allowing some gas from the airbag inflator to vent behind the instrument panel instead of into the airbag. This can cause the airbag to not fully inflate.
According to NHTSA, GM said it will notify owners and replace the passenger-side airbag module free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on July 30, according to NHTSA.
