General Motors is recalling over , trucks because of faulty roof-rail airbags. Though any such recall garners extra attention in the wake of the massive—and ongoing— Takata airbag recall , it should be noted that these are not Takata-supplied airbags, but come from Joyson Safety Systems. According to NHTSA, a separating end cap or inflator rupture could cause compressed gas to escape and send airbag or interior components into the vehicle. This obviously could result in a crash, however according to this report, no crashes are currently blamed on this recall. In fact, all three cases reported happened without passengers inside the cabin. The folks at GMC and Chevrolet will replace affected roof-rail airbag modules at no cost.
