General Motors, the US automaker, said on Friday it would recall nearly a million vehicles in the United States because the driver’s airbag inflator could explode during use.

The complaint covers 994,763 Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia vehicles from 2014 to 2017 with modules manufactured by ARC Automotive, Reuters reported.

GM said in a statement filed Friday that it became aware in March of a report that a 2017 Chevrolet Traverse was involved in a collision in which the driver’s front airbag inflator ruptured.
