Chrysler is Recalling 286,000 Cars due to Airbag Issues

A little over 286,000 Chrysler vehicles are being recalled due to a potential rupture of the side airbag inflators, which could cause serious injury or even death to passengers.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued separate notices regarding the recalls, which pertain to replacement airbag parts for approximately 1,000 cars and specific Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 models from 2018 to 2021.

According to the warnings, there is a chance that the side curtain airbag inflators will burst, which “may result in sharp metal fragments striking occupants, resulting in injury or death.”

“An inflation rupture when not installed in a vehicle can result in injury or death of people nearby,” the warning concerning the recalled replacement parts notes.

Early in May, the carmaker intends to mail letters to owners of the affected vehicles, and dealers will replace both side airbags at no additional cost.

Chrysler, owned by Stellantis, revealed that some cars might have had moisture injected into SABIC inflators during supplier production. Stress corrosion and possible rupture may result from this.
