Dodge Magnum 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 driver's front airbag inflator may rupture upon deployment. Vehicle occupants could be struck by metal fragments resulting in personal injury.
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.
A problem with the software for the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) computer may cause the rear brakes to lock up under certain braking conditions. This could cause a loss of control and possibly a crash without warning.
Shifting to neutral and back to drive at speeds over 40 MPH may cause the drive wheels to lock up briefly. If the drive wheels lock, loss of vehicle control could occur, increasing the risk of a crash.
Over time, the rear brake lines may wear and leak. If the brake lines leak, stopping distance can increase, and there is potential for an engine compartment fire.
Vehicles with a certain type of automatic transmission may not be secure when the shifter is placed in the "park" position. The vehicle may roll if the parking brake is not applied, increasing the risk of a crash.
