Chrysler to recall SUVs with air bag and seatbelt defects worldwide

Posted on Thursday, June 6th, 2013 at 4:39 pm    

Automaker giant Chrysler recently said they will recall 630,000 SUVs, an announcement that came only two days after disputing a federal request to recall 2.7 million Jeeps with gas tank defects.

Chrysler will recall Jeep Patriots and Compass small SUVs worldwide to repair its seatbelts and air bag related problems. The transmission fluid leaks of some 221,000 Jeep Wranglers will also be addressed. Starting in July, Chrysler dealers will repair the software error in the air bags, seatbelt mechanisms, and transmission fluid leaks in the recalled vehicles for free.

On June 4, Chrysler refused a federal request to recall 2.7 million SUVs with gas tanks placed at the back of the rear axle. The recall was requested due to the risk of the vehicle catching fire.
