Chrysler announced a recall for 1.9 million cars over airbags
« on: September 16, 2016, 02:13:18 AM »

Fiat Chrysler has announced a recall for 1.9 million cars over airbags that might not deploy in a frontal crash. The defect has already been linked with several deaths and injuries, the company said.

Most of the affected vehicles were sold in the US, Mexico, and Canada, the car company said on Thursday.
The recall relates to various Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Lancia Models, including Dodge Caliber and Jeep Patriot (pictured above) all made between 2010 and 2014.

Fiat Chrysler said they were trying to resolve a defect linked with activation of airbags and belt modules. In an event of a crash, the belt are programmed to tighten as the airbags deploy.

 However, a certain wiring design might prevent the system from activating in a frontal crash.
So far, three deaths and five injuries may be related to the issue, according to the car maker.
