The 2014-2015 Chevrolet Impala is being recalled for a potential air bag flaw.
Over 8,900 Impala sedans equipped with front vented/heated seats are affected by the recall and according to the American automaker, moisture introduced during seat steaming in the seat assembly production process could cause a calibration error in the electronic control module for the passenger side air bag. The flaw could cause the Impala to not deactivate the passenger side air bag if an infant seat is placed in the front.
Affected vehicles include 5,493 in the U.S., 215 in Canada and 3,281 that have been exported elsewhere in the world. The company is unaware of any crashes, injuries or fatalities related to the condition. To fix the issue, dealerships will recalibrate the passenger seat for free.
The issue was originally reported through GM’s “Speak up for Safety” program, which was created after the massive ignition switch recall.
