414K Chrysler vehicles recalled for replacement of occupant restraint controller

By Colleen Kave, J.D.

Chrysler has recalled approximately 414,134 2012 Jeep Liberty and 2012-2013 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger vehicles because a component within the occupant restraint controller (ORC) may fail and prevent the active headrests from deploying in the event of a rear-end crash. The company cautions that if the active headrests do not deploy in certain rear-end crashes, the front seat occupants have an increased risk of injury (NHTSA Recall Notice, No. 17V640, Report receipt date: October 10, 2017).

Remedy. Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ORC as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 29, 2017.

Contact information. Owners may contact FCA customer service at 1-800-853-1403. FCA’s number for this recall is T56. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Companies: Chrysler (FCA US LLC)
