Chrysler Recalls Jeeps For Airbag Problems

Friday, November 9, 2012

Chrysler is recalling more than 900,000 Jeep brand vehicles worldwide to deal with airbag problems.

The recall includes Jeep Grand Cherokees from the 2002 through 2004 model years and Jeep Libertys from model years 2002 and 2003. About 745,000 of the recalled vehicles were sold in the U-S.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says a component in the airbag control module can fail. The issue could lead to an inadvertent deployment of the airbags, increasing the risk of a crash.

Chrysler says dealers will install a filter to fix the problem. Repairs will be made at no cost to consumers. Affected owners will be notified by mail.
