Recall ID # 14V354000 - AIR BAGS
JUN 20, 2014
Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is conducting a limited regional recall for vehicles originally sold or currently registered in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment of the driver side and/or passenger side frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of one of the affected frontal air bags, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the vehicle occupants.
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the air bag inflator(s), free of charge. The recall is expected to begin mid-December. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403.
