456 Dodge Durango (HB) 2004-2008 models were also recalled based on chassis numbers from (1D4HB48206F156056) to (1D4HB48206F156056), in addition, 63 Chrysler (LE) 300C / SRT8 2006-2007 models were recalled based on chassis numbers from (1C3H863H06Y102915) to (1C3H873WX7Y525765). And, 1033 Chrysler (LX) 300,300C, SRT8 / Dodge Charger 2005- 2010 models were recalled, based on chassis numbers from (2B3CA3CV0AH170408) to (2C3HA73WX9H547928).

 

This recall is due to the rupture of the driver's airbag deployment module as a result of excessive internal pressure during normal airbag deployment, especially if the car has been exposed to high humidity levels for a long period, which may cause metal fragments to fly into the cabin and injure the car occupants. Accordingly, the company will replace the driver's airbag blower.

 

The recalls underscore the Authority's efforts in the field of traffic safety in cooperation with automotive dealers to preserve the lives and safety of consumers, and provide the necessary protection for consumers, in line with its keenness to conduct continuous reviews of all products in the Sultanate’s market.
