Chrysler Group LLC is recalling new 2013 Dodge Durangos in an attempt to fix problems with the airbag systems. The NHTSA reported that Chrysler is recalling potential lemon Dodge Durangos that were manufactured between April 11 through July 20, 2012 for faulty airbag occupant restraint controls (ORC).
The faulty ORC can result in failure of the side air bags from deploying if the car is involved in a side impact collision. Failure of the side airbags from deploying can result in substantial injury to passengers.
Chrysler has stated that they are unaware of any collisions or injuries related to the airbag defects. Chrysler will notify owners of the affected vehicles of this problem. Authorized Chrysler dealers will replace the faulty ORC modules free of charge. If you own or lease a new Dodge Durango, make sure to call your local Chrysler dealership and schedule an appointment for an inspection and the necessary repair work.
