2018 GMC TERRAIN - AIR BAGS: AIR BAG CONTROL MODULE

General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain 2018 GMC Terrain vehicles. The sensing diagnostic module (SDM) that senses a crash and deploys the necessary air bags may not power down correctly when the vehicle is shut off, causing it to be inoperative when the vehicle is restarted.

  • Hazard
    If the SDM becomes inoperative, it will not detect a crash or command the necessary air bag deployment, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
  • Consumer Action
    GM will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the SDM with updated software, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 18179.
