Fiat Chrysler Recalls 900,000 SUVs for airbags and brakes

Fiat Chrysler is recalling nearly 900,000 vehicles due to issues with airbag deployment and anti-lock braking systems.

The first recall affects 284,089 2003 Jeep Liberty and 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs in the United States due to a defect with airbag components that could affect airbag deployment. The company is aware of seven injuries related to the defect, but no accidents. With the recent Takata recall, one would think that recall is related, but Fiat has stated that the SUVs were not equipped with Takata airbags.  There are about 70,000 vehicles outside the United States being recalled for the issue as well. The remedy involves dealers replacing the occupant restraint control module and impact sensors which have caused airbags to deploy inadvertently. The remedy will be made free of charge to owners.

The second recall affects 275,614 2012-2105 Dodge Journey cross-utility vehicles in the United States due to a defect with the anti-lock brake system. Water intrusion may disable the vehicles’ anti-lock braking and electronic stability control systems. This could cause serious injuries if the vehicle were involved in an accident in which these systems would not function. The recall also affects over 266,000 vehicles outside the United States. There are no known injuries or accidents related to the defect. The remedy involves dealers applying a moisture sealant and replacing electrical components free of charge to owners.
