The recall was issued following an investigation that found an improperly applied protectant coating could allow moisture absorbsion and the subsequent failure or malfunction of airbags. Moisture absorbsion leading to airbag malfunction has been at the root of the Takata airbag recalls issued by the NHTSA.
