Vehicles Affected: Approximately 363,500 model-year 2011-15 Dodge Journey SUVs

The Problem: If the airbag wiring harness gets chafed within the steering wheel and short circuits, the driver’s frontal airbag may unexpectedly deploy, increasing the risk of a crash or injury in certain Dodge Journey SUVs.

The Fix: Dodge dealers will inspect the airbag wiring within the steering wheel, replacing it if necessary; a protective cover will also be installed. The repairs will be made for free.

What Owners Should Do: Dodge manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying affected Journey owners Aug. 21. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
