Body, Interior & Misc., April 3, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The supplemental restraint system, commonly called the "airbag", consists of several "bags" that are very quickly inflated to help protect the vehicle occupants in the event of a crash. An on board computer uses information from various sensors to determine if and when the airbags should deploy. The affected vehicles may have a poor electrical connection in the front seat which could affect deployment of the side airbags and/or cause the airbag warning light to illuminate. Dealers will replace the airbag withing harness in both the driver and passenger front seats to correct this concern.

Suspension & Steering, January 4, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) does not warn the driver when a tire is 25% below the recommend pressure. The recalled vehicles notify the customers when the tire pressure reaches 22psi rather than the required 24psi. Underinflated tires can result in overheating of the tire, which could lead to a blowout and possible crash. Dealers will reprogram the TPMS to correct this concern. The Chrysler recall number is L43.
