Recalls

Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
02V222
Summary:
Certain passenger cars, minivans, and sport utility vehicles have an air bag inflator on the driver's side that could fracture at a weld during a deployment. Pieces of the inflator could strike and injure vehicle occupants, and the air bag cushion would not inflate fully, reducing the capability of the bag to protect the driver.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will inspect and replace, if necessary, the air bag module assembly on the driver's side. The manufacturer reported that owner notification was expected to begin during September 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Buick at 1-800-521-7300, Cadillac at 1-800-458-8006, Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020, GMC at 1-800-462-8782, Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537, or Pontiac at 1-800-762-2737.
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
03V250
Summary:
Certain minivans, passenger cars, and sport utility vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 225, "Child Restraint Anchorage System." The owner's manual does not explain the meaning of the location symbols for the lower universal anchorage system.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Owners will be provided with a supplement for their owner's manual. It describes and shows the location symbols for the child restraint anchors that are located in the vehicle. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during August 2003. Owners may contact Buick at 1-866-608-8080, Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339, Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, GMC at 1-800-996-9463, Pontiac at 1-800-620-7668, or Oldsmobile at 1-800-630-6537.
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
04V150
Summary:
On certain sport utility vehicles, a structural support at the latch attachment in the rear liftgate may be inadequate to retain the latch to the liftgate in certain severe vehicle crash events. If the liftgate were to open in a vehicle crash, an occupant could be ejected from the vehicle resulting in increased risk of personal injury.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will add structural reinforcements to the liftgate in the area adjoining the latch assembly. Note: This is an expansion of a previous recall (03V-211). The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. Owners may contact Buick at 1-866-608-8080.
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
03V052
Summary:
In some of these sport utility vehicles, the diameter of the steering column intermediate shaft is too small. This condition could allow the intermediate shaft to spin inside the steering column coupling, resulting in loss of steering control of the vehicle. If this were to happen while the vehicle is moving, a crash could result.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will inspect, and replace if necessary, the steering column intermediate shaft. The manufacturer has reported that owners were notified by telephone on Feb. 7, 2003, with a follow-up letter on Feb. 11, 2003. Owners may contact Buick at 1-800-521-7300.
