FIAT Chrysler Australia has issued another safety recall for the Jeep Wrangler.
Only last week FCA recalled 2007-2010 JK Wranglers due to dust affecting the vehicle’s clock spring, which in turn compromises the airbag circuits.
The most recent recall from FCA is for 2007-2012 JK Wranglers, while 2004-2010 Dodge Rams are also affected (campaign number: S43).
The defect this time relates to the front passenger Takata airbag, which poses the risk of rupturing due to excessive internal pressure during normal deployment. The airbag malfunction is more likely to occur in vehicles exposed to humid conditions for extended periods.
The hazard of the safety defect could result in serious injury and even death, as an inflator rupture can cause metal fragments to strike vehicle occupants.
If you’re an owner of the affected models, expect to be contacted as soon as possible by the dealers.
