2008 Dodge Charger Recalls
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
When deployed in a crash, the driver's front air bag inflator can rupture. As a result, metal fragments from the inflator can strike occupants.
The ignition key may stick and move between positions in the ignition key cylinder. This can cause the vehicle to shut off and various electrical accessories to stop operating inadvertently.
Vehicles with a column mounted shifter may display the gearshift position incorrectly. This could allow the vehicle to move in an unexpected direction, increasing the risk of a crash.
The rear axles are secured with a fastener called a hub nut that is fastened in a special fashion. On some vehicles, this special fastening method was left out, which could allow the axle shaft to separate from the wheel hub. If this happens, you would experience a loss of power and vehicle acceleration.
