General Motors (GM) is recalling about 1,000 certain model year 2015 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV vehicles for a manufacturing defect.

The passenger side instrument panel top cover on the affected vehicles may have been manufactured using an incorrect spacer fabric, causing a reduction of adhesion between the spacer fabric and the vinyl show surface. This reduced adhesion may result in inconsistent passenger airbag deployment.

Inconsistent airbag deployment increases the risk of personal injury in the event of a crash.

GM will notify owners affected by the recall and dealers will replace the instrument panel top cover, free of charge.

For more information owners can contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 14686.
