Chrysler Recalls Nearly 2 Million Vehicles

Chrysler is recalling 1.9 million cars and SUVs due to defective seatbelts and airbags.

The defective seatbelts and airbags could possibly be linked to three deaths and five injuries at this time.

The defects are preventing airbags and automatic seatbelt tighteners from being deployed properly in crashes.

The recall affects certain Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Lancia vehicles from 2010 to 2014.

The recalled models are: 2010 Chrysler Sebring, 2011-2014 Chrysler 200, 2010-2012 Dodge Caliber, 2010-2014 Dodge Avenger, and 2010-2014 Jeep Patriot and Compass SUVs.

The faulty equipment was used in model year vehicles 2010-2014. The manufacturer says they are no longer using this equipment.

If you are the owner of one of these vehicles and have not been in contact with the manufacturer, contact your local Chrysler dealer right away.

This is second large vehicle recall for Chrysler this year. 

In April they recalled 1.1 million vehicles for a gear selector problem that left one man dead.

Defective vehicles can cause serious and sometimes fatal injuries.  These vehicles are not only a danger to the occupants of the vehicle but also others on the road.
