Takata Airbag Recall: Fiat Chrysler Adds 1.4 Million Cars To The List In The U.S.

Approximately 1.4 million FCA vehicles are being called back in the United States to have their passenger side airbag inflators replaced.

The action is actually the fourth and final phase of a coordinated schedule for the automaker, established by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Included here are certain 2010 Ram 3500, 4500 and 5500 models, the 2010-2011 Dodge Dakota, 2010-2014 Challenger, 2011-2015 Charger, 2010-2015 Chrysler 300 and 2010-2016 Jeep Wrangler.

Additionally, the same vehicles are being recalled in Canada, Mexico and markets outside the NAFTA region, in 88,830, 12,821 and 118,084 units, respectively, said FCA. All of them have been initially fitted with the defective side airbag inflators made by Takata, which are said to have led to 23 deaths worldwide and numerous injuries.

“We strongly urge our customers to respond to their recall notices by contacting an authorized Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep/Ram dealer”, said FCA’s chief of North American Safety and Regulatory Compliance, Mark Chernoby. “Recall service is free, we have replacement parts and dealers are ready to help.”

The carmaker didn’t say when owners of the aforementioned vehicles will be notified, but states that concerned customers can contact their Recall Information Center at 1-800-853-1403 for more information on the subject.

On a more positive note, FCA is not aware of any accidents, injuries or deaths associated with the cars included in this recall.
