Chrysler Recalls 744,822 Jeeps Over Airbag Issue

 November 09, 2012 10:51 AM


(By Balachander) Chrysler Group LLC is recalling 744,822 Jeep sport utility vehicles in the United States to fix an airbag issue.

The recall involves Jeep Liberty from model years 2002 and 2003 and Jeep Grand Cherokees from the 2002 through 2004 model years, according to documents filed with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

A component in the air bag control module may fail causing the front airbags, side curtain airbags, and/or seatbelt pretensioners to deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated, NHTSA documents showed.

Inadvertent deployment of the airbags may increase the risk of injury and the possibility of a vehicle crash, NHTSA said.

Chrysler, controlled by Italy's Fiat SpA, will install a supplemental jumper harness to fix the issue.

The recall is expected to begin during January 2013.
