Report Receipt Date: MAR 18, 2015
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V157000
Component(s): AIR BAGS
Potential Number of Units Affected: 40

Manufacturer: General Motors LLC
Model: 2015 Chevrolet Colorado, 2015 GMC Canyon

SUMMARY:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2015 Chevrolet Colorado vehicles manufactured September 15, 2014, to January 21, 2015, and 2015 GMC Canyon vehicles manufactured October 3, 2014, to December 9, 2014. The affected vehicles have a front driver air bag inflator that may be misaligned to the air bag module backplate. This can cause the inflator to separate from the backplate during a deployment.

CONSEQUENCE:
If the inflator separates from the back plate in the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the driver or other occupants. Even if the inflator does not rupture, the air bag may fail to properly inflate, or detach from the steering wheel, increasing the risk of injury to the driver.

REMEDY:
GM has notified owners, and dealers will inspect the driver air bag module inflator for proper alignment, replacing the air bag, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began March 19, 2015. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 15037.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

I never buy a new platform vehicle on its first two years of manufacturing. I make this statement since I work for the auto industry.

Glad GM had detected this before anyone get injuried.
