General Motors Has Recalled 1999 Pontiac Montana

(SafetyAlerts) -  General Motors Corporation Has Recalled 1999 Pontiac Montana because the driver's air bag inflator modules could produce excessive internal pressure.

Potential Number of Units Affected: 814

Dates of Manufacture: August – September 1998

Defect: On certain of these minivans, 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.

Remedy: Dealers will replace the driver air bag module. The manufacturer reported that owner notification was expected to begin during February 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Pontiac at 1-800-762-2737.
