Air Bags Do Not Deploy In An Accident

Recall Details

The air bags may not deploy during an accident. Dealers will replace the air bag inflator modules with properly machined ones free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The air bags may not deploy to protect occupants in an accident. This would result in increased risk of occupant injury.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Dodge or Chrysler must be performed by a Dodge or Chrysler dealership. Chrysler notified known owners of affected vehicles in 1990. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Dodge or Chrysler 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.
