Two major automakers have launched auto recalls that impact popular vehicles seen across the country.
The first recall campaign was launched by Chrysler. According to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 390,000 units have been associated with the recall campaign.
According to the official announcement, the 2007 through 2010 Jeep Wrangler JK vehicles manufactured between March 2, 2006 and August 13, 2010 come with clockspring assemblies that may become contaminated over the contact with dust. If that occurs, the air bag circuit may fail, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Chrysler has announced that all impacted vehicle owners will be contacted soon, but hasn’t announced a notification schedule.
You may contact Chrysler directly to learn more about this recall. Schedule a visit to a local dealer to have your vehicle repaired promptly to avoid any potential issues in the future.
The second recall announcement consumers should not ignore was launched by General Motors.
According to the manufacturer, 2016 Chevrolet Malibu units may have been fitted with memory chips in the electronic brake control modules that may cause the vehicle to experience braking issues. Due to the electric issues the impacted vehicles may experience, consumers should stay alert to the potential risks.
General Motors has announced that all impacted vehicle owners will be contacted directly after June 10. At dealers, the company will have the recalled vehicles fitted with replacement electronic brake control modules entirely for free.
If the company does not contact you directly or if you would like to learn more on how to have this issue addressed, contact Chevrolet promptly to have your questions answered.
Whether you own a Chevy or a Jeep, make sure your vehicle is repaired promptly so that it won’t expose you to any potential crash or injury risks.
Consumers are often injured in crashes that take place after recall campaigns are launched. Do not let either of these recalls expose you to any major risks.
