Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, Challenger Recalled For Airbag Issue

Follow Bengt

Chrysler is recalling nearly 120,000 late-model vehicles for a potential electrical problem associated with the airbag system.

The recall affects Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, and Dodge Challenger models from the 2011 and 2012 model years, with a total of 119,497 U.S. vehicles (and 139,000 in all, worldwide)—all manufactured from April 11, 2011 to December 14, 2011.

According to documents filed with the recall effort, some of the affected vehicles might, at the seat side-airbag wiring harness, have terminal crimps (electrical connectors) that are improperly sized—potentially leading to malfunction and a failure of the airbags to deploy in an accident.

No real-world failures or crashes are associated with this recall; according to Chrysler, the issue was reported by customers complaining of intermittent airbag-light illumination.

Owners of potentially affected vehicles may contact Chrysler, at 800-247-9753, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline, at 888-327-4236.
