What are the defects?

Airbag inflator: As it gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the airbag inflator propellant to degrade. If an affected vehicle is involved in a collision triggering the airbag, the metal inflator housing may explode/rupture under too much internal pressure.

What are the hazards?

In the event that a defective airbag inflator ruptures, metal fragments may propel out through the airbag cushion towards the vehicle occupants causing serious injury or fatality.

What should consumers do?

Customers should contact either Maracoonda Automotive or their local Chrysler dealership, to arrange an inspection, and schedule an appointment for replacement of affected airbags as a matter of urgency.

More Takata affected vehicles, I still say it is getting easier to just tell us which ones we don’t need to worry about and just recall the rest.
