The NADI (non-azide driver inflator) type airbag may have improper sealing that could allow moisture to enter into the propellant.
If the propellant afterwards dries out, it could lead to decreased density resulting in a too high burn rate. Consequently, the airbag may not deploy as designed and provide less protection, increasing the risk of injury.
The MY 1996 – 2000 Mitsubishi Lancer models are affected by this recall.
