If the air bag deployment performance is reduced, it can increase the risk of injury.
Bugatti is recalling certain 2018 Chiron vehicles. The heat shield for the gas generator for the side air bags may have been incorrectly installed during the air bag manufacturing process, potentially reducing the performance of the air bag. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 214, “Side Impact Protection.”
Bugatti will notify owners, and dealers will remove the affected seats to repair or replace them, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin June 20, 2018. Owners may contact Bugatti customer service at 1-805-557-1050.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
