2009 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.
Recalls on your Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge or Mitsubishi must be performed by a Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge or Mitsubishi dealership, respectively. Chrysler and Mitsubishi will notify known owners of affected vehicles (a timetable of this notification is unavailable as of the time of this writing). If you do receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge or Mitsubishi dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
