Dodge & Chrysler Vehicles Recalled Due to Airbag Cover Malfunction

Published on August 26th, 2020

Nearly 1 million Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) are being recalled due to pieces of the drivers-side airbag cover acting as dangerous projectiles in the case of a crash. There is the potential for parts of the plastic airbag cover may come apart and hit passengers in the car if deployed.

The automaker is currently aware of 14 injured drivers as the result of the defect. Impacted vehicles don’t have airbags that were supplied by Takata. This recall includes the airbag cover but not the airbag itself.

FCA recommends that owners don’t tamper with any plastic emblems that are attached to the airbag cover located on the steering will. Doing so may impact the airbag’s functionality.

Specific Vehicles Impact

Impacted vehicles include:

  • 2007-2011 Dodge Nitro SUVs
  • 2008-2010 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans

To see if your vehicle is impacted, enter your vehicle’s unique 17-digit identification number into the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website.
