Recall - Airbag Safety Notice

Models affected: Tipo built between 02/11/2016 and 27/04/2017

Details: The driver’s airbag was manufactured with an incorrectly manufactured airbag inflator initiator that may not ignite when a deployment voltage is provided to the initiator. As a result, vehicles may experience a “non-deployment” of the driver airbag during a crash event warranting an airbag deployment, which could increase the risk of injury.

Remedial Action: Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected and replace the driver airbag unit (initiator included) with a quality assured unit.

Vehicle Id: NM422500006E59422 to ZFA35600006F14457
