Fiat Chrysler recalled nearly 1.9 million Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep vehicles worldwide Tuesday due to a faulty airbag controller that could prevent the vehicle’s airbags from deploying.
The recall includes the 2010 Chrysler Sebring, 2011-2014 Chrysler 200, 2010-2012 Dodge Caliber, 2010-2014 Dodge Avenger, 2010-2014 Jeep Patriot and 2010-2014 Jeep Compass.
According to FCA, the vehicles could have a defective airbag controller that may not trigger in the event of a crash or trigger unexpectedly. At least three people have died in crashes in affected vehicles where the airbags failed to deploy, while another five have been injured. FCA says it first discovered the issues in April 2015.
The automaker says it “no longer uses the occupant restraint controllers or wire routing design found in the affected vehicles.” According to The Guardian, it wouldn’t say which company manufactured the part.
FCA has yet to provide info on when owners might be able to get their car fixed.
