Question Not A Recall: airbag inflators

Statement: Regional Field Action
June 23, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -


Chrysler Group has agreed, in principle, to honor a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) request to replace airbag inflators in certain vehicles registered in four U.S. regions.

This is not a safety recall. Chrysler Group has not identified a defect. This is a field action conducted out of an abundance of caution.

The action, expected to receive final approval this week in accordance with Chrysler Group protocol, follows consultation with NHTSA and other automobile manufacturers that use the same airbag inflator.

The Company is aware of a single related injury involving one of its vehicles. The vehicle was equipped with the component, currently under investigation by NHTSA.

The regions affected by Chrysler Groupís field action are Florida, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.

Customers will be advised when they may schedule service. Those with questions or concerns may call Chrysler Groupís Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.

2.9 mln vehicles over air bag flaw

Honda, others recall another 2.9 mln vehicles over air bag flaw

06/23/2014

Quote:
In the United States, NHTSA opened a probe earlier this month on whether Takata inflators made after 2002 are prone to fail, and whether driving in high humidity contributes to the risk of air bag explosions.
Quote:
In a June 11 letter to the NHTSA, Takata said it would support "regional campaigns" to replace certain driver-side air bag inflators made between January 2004 and June 2007, as well as certain passenger-side inflators made between June 2000 and July 2004. Takata said it believes these inflators were supplied to BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Mazda, Nissan and Toyota for vehicles sold in the United States.

Takata said it will support the replacement of those inflators in vehicles in high humidity areas of Puerto Rico, Florida, Hawaii and the Virgin Islands.

But it did not admit that there is any "safety defect" in the air bags, saying currently available information does not indicate that.

Quote:
Separately, Nissan and Chrysler both said they are conducting regional recalls in the United States to replace Takata air bag inflators in certain vehicles in high humidity regions of Puerto Rico, Florida, Hawaii and the Virgin Islands.

Nissan said it is determining which models and how many vehicles are affected by the recall. A Chrysler spokesman said 2006 Dodge Charger was the affected model but the scope beyond that has not been determined.
