Chrysler is recalling more than 363,000 model year 2011-2015 Dodge Journey vehicles.

What's the problem?

In the affected vehicles, the driver's frontal air bag may unexpectedly deploy if the air bag wiring harness gets chafed within the steering wheel and short circuits.

Unexpected deployment of the driver's frontal air bag increases the risk of a crash or driver injury.

What happens next?

Chrysler will notify owners of the recalled vehicles beginning in mid-August 2017. Local Dodge dealers will then inspect the air bag wiring within the steering wheel, replacing it if necessary. A protective cover will also be installed. These repairs will be made free of charge to vehicle owners.
