“Breakaway pins within the steering column, designed to absorb energy and reduce injury during a crash, could have been damaged during production, possibly affecting the performance of the driver’s air bag in the event of a crash,” NHTSA said. “As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 208, Occupant Crash Protection.”
An airbag that does not deploy as designed can increase the risk of injury.
