FCA Canada recalls 400,000 cars with Takata airbags

By ,

We reported last week that over 12 million additional vehicles would be recalled to fix their passenger-side airbag inflators that were made by Takata. Today, we’ve learned that around 400,000 of the 4.3 million Fiat Chrysler units affected by this latest recall are in Canada.

The propellant contained in the front passenger’s frontal airbag can degrade slowly due to Canadian climate conditions. The recall is being conducted as a precaution to address future risk, and is expected to replace airbag inflators before their function would be affected.

Affected models include:

  • Chrysler 300 (2005-2012)
  • Chrysler Aspen (2007-2009)
  • Dodge Challenger (2008-2012)
  • Dodge Charger (2006-2012)
  • Dodge Dakota (2005-2011)
  • Dodge Durango (2004-2009)
  • Dodge Magnum (2005-2008)
  • Dodge Ram (2004-2010)
  • Jeep Wrangler (2007-2012)
  • Ram 1500 (2004-2008)
  • Ram 2500 (2005-2009)
  • Ram 3500 (2006-2009)
  • Ram 4500 (2008-2010)
