Recalled Jeep airbag deploys, Chrysler doesn’t have parts to fix.

On its website WRGB-TV Albany, NY (8/2) reports that the airbag on Connie Lee’s 2003 Jeep Liberty blew for no apparent reason badly bruising the woman. WRGB notes that the vehicle was the subject of a recent recall and the “the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found flawed occupant restraint control modules within the vehicle can lead to the deployments.” Lee says she wasn’t aware of the recall and when Chrysler sent and investigator to inspect the Jeep she was told the company didn’t have the parts to fix the recalled Jeep. A company spokesman said that “parts for vehicles affected by this campaign have just become available in sufficient quantities and are scheduled for shipment by mid-August.”
