Chrysler has recalled over 900,000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty vehicles to fix defective airbags. The airbags can inflate during the vehicle’s normal operation due to an issue with the vehicle’s control circuits.
NHTSA has investigated and found that there have been 215 occurrences of the airbags deploying due to the defect. There were no crashes reported in from the incidents. Chrysler reports that the airbag warning light should illuminate prior to the airbags deploying.
The recall is for Jeep Grand Cherokees built between Aug. 1, 2001 and May 16, 2003, and to Jeep Libertys built between June 6, 2001 and March 19, 2003.
