Liberty Jeep Airbags

NHTSA logoThe National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating 2002 and 2003 Liberty Jeep SUVs in response to complaints from jeep owners that the airbags go off unexpectedly. Although no deaths have been reported, drivers have suffered cuts, burns and bruises. 42 incidents involved the driver side front air bags and in 45 cases both driver and passenger front bags inflated. Chrysler believes the problem is related to an electrical voltage spike.

To date, the problem appears to be limited to vehicles made prior to March of 2003. However, Chrysler has no explanation why more recent models are not affected. An engineering analysis is ongoing and might ultimately lead to a recall. To monitor the investigation and learn of a recall visit the NHTSA’s website, or call NHTSA’s auto safety hotline at: 1-888-327-4236.
