Chrysler Recalls 2002 – 2004 Jeep Models for Inadvertent Airbag or Pretensioner Deployment

November 09, 2012

AUBURN HILLS, MI – Chrysler Group is recalling model-year 2002 – 2003 Jeep Liberty and 2002 – 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles to replace a component that could lead to inadvertent airbag or pretensioner system deployment.

“A design change to a supplied component was linked to a small number of inadvertent air bag deployments, and in keeping with the best interests of our customers, we initiated a recall campaign,” said David Dillon, Chrysler Group’s Head of Product Investigations and Campaigns.

The automaker stated it’s not aware of any accidents resulting from this component change. The company will fit affected vehicles with a filter that restores the control module’s intended functionality at no cost to customers. Chrysler stated the campaign affects 744,822 vehicles in the U.S. and that it will notify customers directly.
