An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Corrective Summary:
Toyota will notify the Toyota, Scion and Lexus owners. General Motors will contact the Pontiac owners. Depending on the model, dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator or the air bag assembly, free of charge. The recall began on February 1, 2017.
