GM is recalling certain model year 2012 Chevrolet Express and GMC savana vehicles manufactured from June 2, 2011, through October 17, 2011. The second stage of the dual-stage air bag will not inflate in a severe frontal impact. Accordingly, the air bags fail to conform to the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety no. 208, "occupant crash protection."
GM will notify owners, and dealers will install a new front passenger air bag free of charge. The safety recall began on November 29, 2011. Owners may contact GMC at 1-800-462-8782 or Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020.
