Dodge Ram and Chrysler 300C – driver’s side airbag may fail to deploy correctly

Built from 27/07/2003 – 22/08/2011

This recall affects a large number of cars, since it covers vehicles built over an eight year period. The driver’s side airbag inflator housing may rupture during deployment in an accident. This can lead to metal fragments being propelled into the cabin, potentially injuring occupants. The recall notes that this is more likely to be a problem if the vehicle has been exposed to humidity for extended periods.
