Another move to push them back due to the risk of injury from airbag fragments is underway in Brazil. This time, the call comes from FCA, the group that owns the Italian brand Fiat and members of the Chrysler Group.
The recall is for Chrysler 300 C models (from 2006 to 2012), Jeep Wrangler (from 2007 to 2012) and for the Ram Pickup (2004 to 2009). There are 2,412 units of sedan, 1,029 of sport utility vehicle and 4,455 of pickup. In total, 7,896 models of three vehicles are involved.
According to FCA, if the air bag inflates, the airbag can rupture, causing pieces of metal to scatter.
For now, the company is still reporting the bug. A call will be made later, by letter sent to owners, in what the FCA calls a second phase of action.
After receiving the notification – FCA did not say when this phase would begin -, the affected vehicle owner must make an appointment to resolve the problem at Chrysler, Jeep and Ram dealers.
