On certain vehicles, the electrical connections from the Sensing and Diagnostic Module (SDM) to the roof-mounted side impact airbags and the safety belt pretensioner are reversed. In frontal impacts, the pretensioner will not deploy. Dealers will replace the SDM and reprogram the Body Control Module. Note that GM has mailed written notification and contacted by phone every affected owner.

On certain vehicles equipped with an M6 manual transmission, the clutch master cylinder elbow may develop a hairline crack under normal operating conditions. A fluid leak from the system could cause the fluid level warning light to illuminate, with a loss of gear-shifting capability. Dealers will replace the hydraulic elbow.
