Chrysler Recalls 5,000 New Jeep Wranglers!

Chrysler has just announced that it will be bringing back 5,334 Jeep Wranglers made between February 7, 2007 - October 11, 2011 due to a broken electrical circuit in the airbag wiring. This defect can lead to non-deployment of the airbag during a crash, which would obviously not bode well for its driver. Chrysler says it will notify all of the Jeep owners during the month of November (and what will undoubtedly become December despite their best efforts), but owners can be proactive and contact the company at 1-800-853-1403 to schedule their free fix at their local dealership.  

Read on for the full report from Safercar.gov ...

Vehicle Make / Model:Model Year(s):
Jeep / Wrangler2008-2012

Manufacturer:Chrysler Group LLC
Mfr's Report Date:Nov 01, 2011
NHTSA Campaign ID Number:11V528000
NHTSA Action Number:PE11019
Component:Air Bags: Frontal
Potential Number of Units Affected:5,334

Summary:

Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2008-2012 right hand drive (RHD) Jeep Wrangler vehicles manufactured from February 1, 2007, through October 10, 2011. Some vehicles may be equipped with driver's airbag clockspring assemblies that could experience a compromised airbag circuit resulting in an airbag lamp illumination, which indicates that the airbag may not deploy.

Consequence:

A broken electrical circuit in the airbag clockspring wiring assembly can lead to non-deployment of the driver frontal airbag and will not be able to properly protect the driver in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injuries.

Remedy:

Chrysler will notify owners and remedy the vehicles as necessary free of charge. Chrysler will mail to owners an interim notification on or before November 2011. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

Notes:

Chrysler's recall number is L37. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.

All these cars our being recalled for a air bag problem. You would think they would check everything before they put it on the market, but i guess not.
