Passenger car.
Risk
The propellant mixing ratio in certain seat-belt pre-tensioner igniters may be incorrect. As a result, in the event of an accident where the front seat-belt pre-tensioners are activated, the pre-tensioners would not provide the restraint performance required if the igniter did not ignite as intended. This could put the occupants at a greater risk of injury.
