Chrysler has issued its second recall over the past few months related to a problem with its vehicles that can lead to the airbags going off. This time Chrysler has recalled approximately 376,000 of its minivans for issues with the air conditioning and heating systems that can lead to the air bags being inadvertently deployed.
The recall affects certain potential Chrysler lemon vehicles including the model year 2008 Chrysler Grand Voyager, Chrysler Town and Country, and Dodge Grand Caravan.
These vehicles were recalled back in January 2011 because of a water leak onto electronic chips that would set off the airbag light and potentially cause the airbags to be deployed. Dealers replaced a component within the affected vehicles to fix the leak, but engineers have determined that the moisture from the water leak may have resulted in damaged circuits. As a result, the instant Chrysler Recall is another attempt by the company to inspect and fix the problem.
Chrysler has stated that they believe it is in the best interest of their consumers to replace the damaged components in order to ensure the proper functionality of the vehicles’ safety systems.
If you own a potential 2008 Chrysler lemon vehicle, make sure to take your vehicle into an authorized Chrysler dealership for repair work that they are conducting free of charge. If you have experienced any problems with the airbags of your potential vehicle that is on the Chrysler recall list, your vehicle may be a lemon and you may be entitled to monetary relief.
