Jeep recalls thousands of SUVs with airbag issues

Posted under automotive defects

Over 228,000 Jeep Cherokee SUVs are being recalled worldwide due to faulty side airbags that may potentially injure occupants, syracuse.com reported on February 3.

Fiat Chrysler stated that the 2014 and 2015 Jeep Cherokee drivers are at risk of crashing because the side airbags may unintentionally launch if the driver abruptly changes direction. No incidents of injury from the unintentional deployment of the airbags have reached Fiat Chrysler. Dealers will repair the affected vehicles by replacing the electric control unit. This is the second attempt to address the problem; if you previously had your unit repaired instead of replaced, you may still be eligible for an upgrade.
