FCA Recalls 1.9M Vehicles for Another Airbag Defect

Sep 16, 2016



Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is recalling 1.9-million vehicles for a possible airbag defect.

The issue has been linked to three deaths and five injuries and according to FCA the vehicles being recalled are equipped with a particular occupant restraint control module and front impact sensor wiring that can potentially cause the airbags and seatbelts to fail in certain collisions. If all the factors are present, it could increase the potential for occupant injury said FCA.


Affected vehicles include the 2010 Chrysler Sebring, 2011-2014 Chrysler 200, 2010-2012 Dodge Caliber, 2010-2014 Dodge Avenger and 2010-2014 Jeep Patriot and Compass SUVs.

Of the total 1.9 million, 1.4 million affected vehicles are in the U.S., 142,959 are in Canada and 81,901 are in Mexico. The remaining 284,051 are outside of North America. The Mexico recall also includes the 2010 Chrysler Cirrus and the non-North America recall includes the 2012-2013 Lancia Flavia.

FCA said that the automaker no longer uses the occupant restraint controllers or wire routing design found in the affected vehicles.
