In Canada, 99,965 vehicles are affected by the recall.

A manufacturing defect may have affected the Occupant Classification System (OCS) in the passenger seat.

A short circuit would impair the sensitivity of the seat and, since the seat can no longer correctly adjust the weight of the occupant, it would not trigger the airbag deployment as expected in certain collisions.
