An airbag issue has prompted a recall from Chrysler for certain Jeep vehicles.

The automaker is recalling certain model year 2007-2010 Jeep Wrangler JK vehicles and 2011-2016 Right-Hand-Drive Jeep Wrangler vehicles. The clockspring assembly may become contaminated with dust and cause the airbag circuit to fail.

Failure of the air bag circuit may prevent the driver's frontal airbag from deploying in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

The manufacturer is recalling about 395,000 Wrangler JK vehicles and about 7,000 Right-Hand-Drive Jeep Wrangler vehicles.

Chrysler will notify owners about the recall, but has not yet provided a notification schedule. Dealers will replace the clockspring, wheel back cover, and column shroud, free of charge.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403.
