Chrysler is recalling 2013 Dodge and Chrysler minivans due to airbag glitches. The latest Chrysler recall covers approximately 282,000 newer models because faulty sensors are incorrectly deploying the side-airbags on the opposite side of the impact site. The software is faultily programmed to inadvertently deploy the airbags that do not need to be deployed, instead of the airbags the closest to the impact point. Issued in the recall are 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan, 2013 Chrysler Town and Country and 2013 Ram Cargo Van models.
There have been three incident reports of crashes in which the wrong side-airbags deployed. The glitch was found during an internal investigation after a customer complaint. The front-row and passenger side dashboard airbags are not affected.
Chrysler issued a statement that dealers will reprogram the sensor at no cost to the customer. Owners that have additional concerns or questions can contact Chrysler for more information regarding the recall.
