After the 2009 model year Honda Odyssey minivans were investigated by the NHTSA for possible liftgate problems, cheap Jeep’s turn just came up to have its Liberty model investigated by the agency because of some problems with airbag deployment.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 387.356 Jeep Liberty vehicles of the 2002 and 2003 model year will be investigated after the agency received seven consumer complaints, all of them saying that the airbag deployed without a crash.
The NHTSA says that out of the seven complaints received, five of them reported injuries and a preliminary investigation is the first step in a process that can lead to a recall.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration hadn’t received any reports of crashes regarding the airbag deployment issue.
Jeep didn’t comment in anyway the airbag problems at its 2002 and 2003 model year Liberty. If the NHTSA will consider that the airbag deployment issue is a severe problem, owners of the Liberty will have to make a trip back to the dealerships.
