The affected vehicles may have improperly sized terminal crimps on the seat side-airbag wiring harness which may cause the seat side-airbags to malfunction and illuminate the airbag warning light. CONSEQUENCE: In the event of a crash necessitating airbag deployment the airbags may not operate as designed, increasing the risk of injury. REMEDY: Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace both driver and passenger seat airbag wiring harnesses, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during April 2013.

RECALL Subject : Drive Shaft Failure may cause Airbag Deployment
Report Receipt Date: APR 03, 2013 NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V121000 Component(s): AIR BAGS , POWER TRAIN , STRUCTURE Potential Number of Units Affected: 61,409 Manufacturer: Chrysler Group LLC SUMMARY: Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2007-2008 Dodge Nitro 4X2 vehicles manufactured March 21, 2006, through March 1, 2008; and 2008 Jeep Liberty 4X2 vehicles manufactured February 15, 2007, through March 1, 2008. The transfer case heat shield may drop down and rub on the drive shaft, weakening it and potentially causing the drive shaft to break.

Additionally, the drive shaft failure will result in a loss of motive power. Either condition may increase the risk of a crash. REMEDY: Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will add a bracket to support the rear of the heat shield, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during May 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N10.
