Dodge Nitro recalls

 

For Models: Chrysler 200, Dodge Avenger, Dodge Nitro, Jeep Liberty

Body, Interior & Misc., July 2, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Active head restraints are designed to move forward and upward as necessary in the event of a rear end collision. These vehicles are being recalled because an internal fault in the occupant restraint control module could cause the active head restraints not to function as expected, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will reprogram the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) or replace the occupant restraint control module as necessary to correct this concern.

For Models: Dodge Nitro, Jeep Liberty

Drive Train, April 3, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The 4 wheel drive transfer case is protected from the hot exhaust system by a heat shield. This shield can come loose and rub on the drive shaft. Over time, this rubbing could weaken and potentially cause the drive shaft to break, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will add a support bracket to the heat shield to correct this concern.

For Models: Chrysler 200, Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Avenger, Dodge Caliber, Dodge Grand Caravan, Dodge Journey, Dodge Nitro, Jeep Compass, Jeep Liberty, Jeep Patriot, Jeep Wrangler
