Jeep Liberty Under Investigation for Possible Airbag Issue

Jun 05, 2017

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has opened an investigation into the 2012 Jeep Liberty.

The probe comes after NHTSA received complaints that airbag control computers in some Jeep Liberty SUVs can fail, preventing the airbag from operating properly in a crash. The investigation covers about 105,000 vehicles from the 2012 model year.

The government agency has received 44 complaints about the issue, involving a computer that detects crashes and controls airbag deployment. No related injuries have been reported.

The American automaker says it is cooperating with the probe and that the only safety device affected is a headrest that moves to prevent injuries if a crash occurs.

According to the reports sent to NHTSA, some owners say an airbag warning light came on. In some instances, the problem was resolved by replacing the computer, while other owners kept driving their SUVs with the light on. One complaint had the owner having to pay for the replacement computer, while others report the repair costing $375 to more than $500.
