    • Vehicles Affected: 16,270

    Summary: Sabersport is recalling 16,270 combination corner and bumper lamp assemblies of various part numbers sold for use as aftermarket equipment for various passenger vehicles.

  3. 2006 Chevrolet Malibu AIR BAGS:FRONTAL NHTSA Campaign #06V417000

    • Date Announced: OCTOBER 31, 2006
    • Vehicles Affected: 794

    Summary: Certain vehicles originally built with cloth seats that were equipped with an automatic air bag passenger sensing system and later reupholstered with aftermarket leather seat cover kits are involved. Testing has indicated that the aftermarket leather seat covers can cause the passenger sensing system to malfunction.

    Consequence: If the passenger sensing system malfunctions, the front air bag on the passenger side may be disabled when it should be enabled, or enabled when it should be disabled. In either case, in the event of a crash that requires air bag deployment, a front passenger's level of injury may be increased.

    Actions: Because a replacement leather seat cover that is compatible with the passenger sensing system is not available, General Motors (GM) will repurchase these vehicles in accordance with the terms stated in GM's letter to owners. The recall began on November 6, 2006. Owners should contact GM at 1-877-477-1022 to begin the process of repurchasing their vehicle.

    Summary: Certain vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 110, "tire selection and rims." The tire label table specified the 15 inch spare for the front disc/rear drum brake system and it should specify a 16 inch spare tire size.

    Consequence: A 15" diameter replacement spare tire can not be installed on the front axle due to a fit interference with the brake caliper.

    Actions: Owners will be mailed a corrected label with installation instructions or the customers could have their dealers to install the label for them. The recall began on November 29, 2005. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #05V486000 »
