The Chrysler Group has recently announced a recall for some Jeep Wranglers and Ram 1500 vehicles for two separate problems.
According to the North American based automaker, a total of 5, 330 units of the Jeep Wrangler, from the 2008 to 2012 model year, in right-hand drive, sold in the United States, primarily for rural mail delivery, will be affected by this recall, and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a problem with the airbags. The carmaker says that the electric clockspring connectors used to operate the driver’s airbag can accumulate dust and this might lead to an airbag fail. Special dust shields will be installed by Chrysler to avoid the airbag failure.
Besides the Jeep Wrangler in right-hand drive, another separate recall has been announced for the 2013 Ram 1500. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 532 units of the 2013 Ram 1500 trucks, out of which 498 have been sold in Canada, have encountered a problem with the windshield visibility. The NHTSA says that the corroded valves may prevent hot coolant from entering the heater core and the defogging feature can fail, reducing visibility. The two separate recall are expected to begin soon, but if you own one of these vehicles, you should probably contact the carmaker or the NHTSA.
