Airbag Defect Leads to Recall of More Than 5,000 Jeep Wranglers
Chrysler is recalling approximately 5,440 model year 2008-2012 Jeep Wrangler right-hand drive vehicles. The affected vehicles have airbag clockspring assemblies that could experience broken airbag circuits.
In the event of a crash necessitating airbag deployment, a broken electrical circuit in the airbag clockspring wiring assembly can lead to non-deployment of the driver-side frontal airbag and will not be able to properly protect the driver, increasing the risk of injuries.
All of the Jeep Wrangler vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured February 1, 2007 through October 10, 2011.
Chrysler will notify the owners of all recalled Wrangler vehicles, and dealers will replace the clockspring and add a steering wheel dust shield, free of charge.
