    GM recall: Side air bags can explode in Chevy, GMC pickups

    https://apnews.com/article/business-...a74aea5f27a134

    DETROIT (AP) General Motors is recalling more than 400,000 pickup trucks in the U.S. because the side air bags can explode without warning and spew parts into the cabin.

    The recall covers certain 2015 and 2016 Chevrolet and GMC Sierra 1500, 2500, and 3500 trucks.

    Documents posted Friday by U.S. safety regulators say the air bag inflator can rupture or the end cap can fly off on both sides of the trucks. Documents say three inflators ruptured in 2015 Silverados last month, one in Florida and two in Texas. All three trucks were unoccupied at the time, and GM says it has no reports of injuries..

    The company says a manufacturing defect allowed moisture into the inflator while it was being manufactured, causing corrosion. The inflators were made in Mexico by Joyson Safety Systems.

    Wow, that would be scary to have one of those pop while you're driving. The only recall I've ever had was for the stupid back door handle on my xB.

    I wonder what material they are using? usually with stuff like this there is a coating on any metal component to prevent corrosion. it just seems like there was corrosion awfully fast....but what do I know?
