Consumer Protection, in cooperation with Dhofar Automotive, recently launched a campaign to recall 2103 Dodge and Jeep vehicles.

1360 Jeep Wrangler JK 2007 – 2012 were also recalled based on chassis No: 1J4FA24147L120666, 1J4FA54188L518191, 1J4FA41X7L227903, 1J4GA24119L702554, 1J4GA59178L651294, 1J4BA5D18AL132343, 1J4GA54139L748453, 1J4BA2D13BL503649, 1J4BA5D10AL207522, 1C4BJWAG6CL115452, 1J4HA5H1XBL639718 and 1C4BJWAG6CL291093.
The recall aims to preserve continuous improvement, and the possibility of the airbag may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants, which could result in serious injury or death. This can happen during accidents or if the vehicle was exposed to high temperature and humidity for long time. Thus the dealer will replace the airbag inflator.
The recalls confirm the efforts by Consumer Protection in traffic safety, and are consistent with its concern to carry our continuous revision for all the products in the Omani markets to provide the protection required for all the consumers.
