  4. 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer 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.

  6. 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer STEERING:HYDRAULIC POWER ASSIST:HOSE, PIPING, AND CONNECTIONS NHTSA Campaign #05V455000

    • Date Announced: OCTOBER 05, 2005
    • Vehicles Affected: 123,592

    Summary: Certain passenger vehicles may have been built with a power steering hose that is not to specification. Under extreme steering maneuvers, such as turning the steering wheel fully to the left or right while braking, the hose may fracture and leak fluid.

On vehicles equipped with hydro-boost power brakes, it could also result in loss of power brake assist and increased braking effort would be required. If the power steering fluid spray were to spray onto hot engine parts, an engine compartment fire could occur.

    Actions: Dealers will inspect the power steering hose(s) for two suspect date codes and replace them if required. The recall will begin on October 14, 2005. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, GMC at 1-866-996-9463, Buick at 1-866-608-8080, Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339, Isuzu at 1-800-255-6727, or Hummer at 1-800-732-5493.
