Recalls: Jeep, Dodge Active Head Restraints, Ram Stability Control, Track Bars
Voluntary Recalls Have No Associated Injuries
Chrysler has issued three truck and SUV-related recalls relating to several of its truck and SUV models, some on discontinued models and some current models. Chrysler claims none of the recalls is the result of reported injuries.
The largest recall involves the active head restraint system on 2011-2013 Jeep Liberty and Dodge Nitro SUVs. Faulty microcontrollers could prevent the active head restraint system from functioning properly. Several Dodge and Chrysler car models are also affected by the recall. A total of 442,000 vehicles sold in the U.S. and 25,000 in Canada are potentially affected, but a per-model breakdown was not given.
The second recall involves 2013 Ram 1500 4x4 models. The ESC warning light may illuminate after the transfer case switch position has been changed immediately before shutting off the ignition. Dealers will reflash the affected vehicles at no charge. Approximately 45,900 vehicles in the U.S. and 21,000 vehicles in Canada are affected.
Finally, 1060 Ram HD models are being recalled for a front track bar fastener that may have an incorrect bolt fastener. Affected trucks will be inspected and repaired at no charge. Most of the affected vehicles are still in dealer inventory. For more information, customers can call Chrysler's recall hotline at 800-853-1403.
