Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is announcing the recall of the 2003 Jeep Liberty and 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee for the possibility of inadvertent airbag deployment. FCA emphasized that none of the affected models are equipped with Takata-sourced airbags, which has been resulted in recalls of many other models at other automakers. The company has received seven reports of inadvertent deployments. A total of 284,089 models in the U.S., 13,411 in Canada, 6,277 in Mexico, and 48,212 vehicles outside the NAFTA region are affected. Dealers will replace the occupant restraint control (ORC) modules as required.
The other recall affects 2012-2015 Dodge Journey models. On some models, the anti-lock brake system and stability control could be affected by water intrusion. A total of 275,614 U.S. models, 78,184 in Canada, 36,471 in Mexico, and 151,476 models outside of the NAFTA region, including the Fiat Freemont, are affected. The recommended repair could involve moisture sealing, wiring replacement, or replacement of the ABS module, as needed.
