You may have seen reports online and in the news about the roof-mounted side airbags deploying on the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2. Pictures were posted through social media of the airbags deploying while driving off-road. Owners claimed they were using the truck as it was intended on mild off-road trails. Chevrolet has now announced an easy solution to the airbag issue.

According to a statement released by Chevrolet, they found 11 official reports of the roof-mounted side airbags deploying. Chevrolet took immediate action to understand the root cause and create a solution. Their team took the real-world data from those airbag deployments to help fix the problem. The statement says those ZR2 owners will be reimbursed for repair costs.

The fix is simple and includes a software flash into the computer of the ZR2. Chevrolet just needs to change the calibration threshold for the deployment of the airbags. The updated calibration is available immediately and will be installed free of charge. Chevrolet ZR2 owners should contact their local dealer or Chevrolet Customer Assistance at 1-800-833-2438.

The statement goes on to say, “We are incredibly proud of the ZR2 and the off-road capability it offers, and are encouraged to see customers are using the truck as intended.”
