CODA Automotive is recalling 117 model year 2012 CODA electric sedans because the side curtain airbags may not deploy in a crash.
The side curtain airbags may have been improperly rolled during production which could cause the airbag to not deploy as intended, increasing the risk of injury.
CODA Automotive, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in May, said the problem was discovered during a NHTSA side impact crash test, according to a defect notification filed with NHTSA on May 30.
This recall supersedes a previous recall conducted by CODA for an improperly installed airbag. All owners, including owners involved in the previous campaign, will be notified and instructed to go to CODA dealers to have both side curtain airbags replaced free of charge.
The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, June 11, 2013. Owners should contact their dealer for more information. CODA Automotive’s recall campaign number is R84002.
