1999 Pontiac Grand Prix Recalled

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting the 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix, manufactured September 1998.

On some passenger vehicles, the driver's air bag inflator modules could produce excessive internal pressure. In the event of a crash that would trigger a driver's air bag deployment, the increased internal pressure can cause the inflator module to explode. Metal and plastic debris could cause severe injury to vehicle occupants.

738 vehicles are affected by this recall.

Dealers will replace the driver side air bag module.

 The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began July 11, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Pontiac at 1-800-762-2737.
