NHTSA launches investigation on Chrysler recall. As you may remember, the automaker conducted a recall of model-years 2002-2004 Grand Cherokee and 2002-2003 Liberty models in November, 2012.
Nearly one million vehicles were recalled during that time due to sudden deployment of front airbags. The problem affected about 744,822 vehicles in the United States. As a remedy, the automaker installed an in-line jumper harness with an integrated electrical filter to eliminate the problem.
However, the remedy might not have been enough to eliminate the trouble with the airbags. The thing is that the automaker has reported several incidents to the NHTSA of recalled vehicles still having the same problem, even after being repaired. Hence, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened an investigation on Chrysler recall to see whether the problem is a widely spread one or not. It should be noted that the automaker is collaborating with the NHTSA quite intensively. All the affected owners may contact the automaker at 1-800-853-1403 for more information.
