Pontiac Recall 06143: Passenger Air Bag Sensing System/FMVSS 208

2007 Pontiac G6

CarComplaints.com Seal Of This Might Hurt

This can increase the risk of injury to a child seat occupant during certain crash conditions.

Air Bags — Frontal — Sensor/Control Module

Summary
Certain passenger vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 208, 'occupant crash protection.' The right front passenger seats in these vehicles are built with a passenger air bag sensing system. When tested with a representative, unrestrained six year old child, the system is required to turn off the right front passenger's airbag. Interference during system calibration caused the seats to be out of specification.
Actions
Dealers will replace the passenger sensing system free of charge. The recall will begin on April 17, 2007. Owners may contact Pontiac at 1-800-620-7668.
