Among the 55 recalls the NHTSA has announced this May comes news of the following:

General Motors LLC (“GM”) has recalled an estimated 55,068 model year 2016-2017 Chevrolet Spark vehicles. In the event of a crash, if a young child is seated improperly and not wearing a seat belt while in the front passenger seat, deployment of the front passenger air bag may injure the occupant’s neck. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 208, “Occupant Crash Protection”.

According to the NHTSA, in the event of a crash with a frontal air bag deployment, an unbelted child in the front passenger seat has an increased risk of injury.
