Passenger Air Bag May Not Deploy Properly
Rivian has decided that certain model year 2022 R1S and R1T vehicles fail to conform with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 208 “Occupant Crash Protection.”
What is the problem?
On a very small percentage of vehicles, a sensor in the front passenger seat belt system may incorrectly report its status as "on" when, in fact, it is off. Since the system may not register the status correctly, it may cause the passenger air bag not to deploy as intended.
What will Rivian do?
Rivian will offer no appointment necessary visits to Rivian Service Centers and pop-up locations up to 6 days a week to inspect and replace, if necessary, passenger seat belt system components in the affected vehicles. Impacted owners may also choose to schedule a service appointment.
What should you do?
Rivian Service Centers and pop-up service locations that will offer expanded hours of operation and inspections without an appointment are listed here. Before your visit, please install the latest software update to your vehicle.If you have questions or would prefer to schedule an appointment, you can also call our Service Team at 855-748-4265.
