General Motors is recalling 74 Autoliv Front-Driver Airbag Modules, part numbers 20928235 and 20928242, that were sold as replacement parts for certain model year 2011-2012 GMC and Chevrolet vehicles.

The driver's air bag inflator may explode during deployment due to a manufacturing defect.

An inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants, resulting in serious injury or death.

What to do

Dealers will inspect and replace the front-driver air bag module -- as necessary -- free of charge.

Letters notifying owners of the safety risk are expected to be mailed on July 5, 2022. A second letter will be sent once the remedy is available.

Owners may contact GM customer service at (888) 988-7267 or Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020. GM's number for this recall is N222364860.
