Minivans Recalled for Airbag Flaw

Minivans Recalled for Airbag Flaw

Chrysler is recalling nearly 300,000 Dodge and Chrysler minivans over risks that airbags may unexpectedly deploy.

The "vehicles in this recall are the same ones involved in an earlier recall to replace a heating and cooling system drain grommet, the automaker, based in Auburn Hills, Michigan, said in a document posted today on the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.

 " The minivans, which include the Voyager, are 2008 year models and "because of the earlier defect, moisture may have leaked into the air-bag controls," Chrysler said.

The Chicago Tribune reported in its "Kicking Tires" blog that the leak "may cause the airbag warning light to illuminate and deploy the airbag inadvertently." It added that "the recall is expected to begin this month."

Reuters reported the recall is only in North America, and the dealer will fix the defect at no charge. Chrysler is a division of Italy-based Fiat SpA.
