The cause may be a sudden triggering of the driver’s airbag or, on the contrary, its failure. This is caused by poor handling of the steering gear parts.

The revocation covers 118,598 cars. They are practically new – all are released from October 3, 2018 to April 1, 2019 and are already sold on the American market. The official review is carried out only there, and all cars belong to the 2019 model year.

From the owners began to receive complaints of spontaneous actuation of the driver’s airbag. Forty-one people applied for warranty repairs, another 20 cases were recorded following a call for technical assistance, and in three cases drivers received various injuries as a result of the unexpected operation of a pillow. After examining the problem, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Bureau (NHTSA) found that the blame for the banal poor-quality parts processing. A number of steering wheel components have burrs and burrs that can damage the SRS Airbag wiring harnesses. As a result, the pillow either involuntarily “shoots” or does not work at all.

To get rid of a potential problem, dealers are said to “install protective pads to prevent damage to the wiring.” Individual components will be replaced. Works will be free, but it is noteworthy that those owners who have eliminated the defect at their own expense will not be reimbursed for expenses. The company explains this by the fact that the recalled cars are under warranty and their owners should contact the dealer for warranty repairs.

Despite the risk of involuntary actuation, the recall will begin no earlier than July 8. Defective components are manufactured by Autoliv; this has nothing to do with Takata airbags.
