General Motors is recalling nearly 6 million vehicles to replace Takata front passenger airbag inflators at risk of exploding.

The inflators contain ammonium nitrate that may become unstable when exposed to moisture, high absolute humidity and high temperatures.

 

GM tried to convince the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) no recalls were necessary by filing four petitions seeking federal approval to skip the recalls that may cost the automaker $1.2 billion.

 

However, NHTSA denied all the petitions.

 

According to General Motors, vehicles are recalled based on "Zones" of the country, and dealerships currently don't have enough replacement airbag inflators.

Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands (Saipan) and the U.S. Virgin Islands
