What's the Problem?
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects:
- 2007-2011 Cadillac Escalade
- 2007-2011 Cadillac Escalade ESV
- 2007-2011 Cadillac Escalade EXT
- 2007-2008 Cadillac Escalade
- 2007-2008 Cadillac Escalade ESV
- 2007-2008 Cadillac Escalade EXT
These SUVs are equipped with non-desiccated passenger frontal inflators containing phase-stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant, which could explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to high absolute humidity, high temperatures, and high-temperature cycling.
"An inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants, resulting in serious injury or death," NHTSA said.
GM is notifying owners and dealers will replace the front passenger airbag inflator with an alternate one, free of charge.
This recall began on March 1, 2021.
