Double recall day

by David Zatz on

Today, FCA announced two unrelated recalls, both relatively minor.

Ram is recalling Ram ProMasters made in October, November, and early December of this year because the seat-mounted side airbag may not work in a crash. Just 23 of these were sold in the US, and it’s likely that the Mexican and Canadian sales were also small. The FCA recall number is S96.

The company is also recalling some four-cylinder 2016 Dodge Journey, Jeep Compass, and Jeep Patriot crossovers made from May 9, 2016, to July 15, 2016 because bad connectors may cause the signal from the crankshaft sensor to be lost, causing stalls.   This affects nearly 50,000 cars worldwide; the FCA recall number is S89.

Chrysler will notify owners and perform repairs for free; the crankshaft sensor recall is expected to begin January 27, 2017. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403.
