 Defect summaryGeneral motors llc (gm) is recalling certain model year 2015 chevrolet colorado vehicles manufactured september 15, 2014, to january 21, 2015, and 2015 gmc canyon vehicles manufactured october 3, 2014, to december 9, 2014. The affected vehicles have a front driver air bag inflator that may be misaligned to the air bag module backplate. This can cause the inflator to separate from the backplate during a deployment.
 Consequence summaryIf the inflator separates from the back plate in the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, this may cause the air bag or steering wheel components to separate and be propelled into the interior compartment, potentially seriously injuring the driver or other occupants. Additionally, the air bag may fail to properly inflate, increasing the risk of injury to the driver.
