You may not want to slam your door shut when you get in or out of a Dodge Charger or you may accidentally cause the side air bags to unexpectedly deploy.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has announced a recall of 322,000 of these vehicles in North America due to the issue which has to date caused three known minor injuries. The 4-door cars subject to recall are the 2011 to 2014 model years, according to a press release on the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Roughly 284,153 of these cars were sold in the United States and 13,169 were sold in Canada, 2,484 in Mexico and 22,272 in other countries.
The airbag recall comes on the heels of an earlier recall for the same issue involving some 844,000 Ram pickup trucks.
The auto maker is also being independently monitored for the next three years to ensure it acts promptly to recall dysfunctional or defective vehicles.
“The safety of consumers is becoming a priority over profits under the watch of the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration,” said Lemon Law Attorney James Johnson, who is also a personal injury attorney. “We need these tough regulations to ensure public safety.”
Fiat Chrysler will fix the defective vehicles for consumers, but until that is done it is best to be careful when closing car doors.
Consumers who find themselves with a vehicle that has numerous problems or their vehicle has not been fixed despite multiple attempts, may find relief under California Lemon Laws.
Johnson Attorneys Group is a California Lemon Law Firm that serves owners of all types of vehicles and helps them negotiate a buy back or replacement vehicle from the manufacturer.
