Multiple news agencies have indicated that Chrysler Group LLC has issued a recall for all units of the 2010 through 2012 Jeep Patriot and Jeep Compass vehicles after it was noted that these vehicles might present a serious injury risk to drivers and passengers.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Chrysler Group LLC decided to issue this recall after it noticed that the vehicles could pose injury risks since the software error may cause the seat belt pre-tentioners to fail. The air bags could also fail to deploy at the precise time of the accident in case of a rollover, which could increase the risk of a potentially severe injury.
The company should be repairing the affected vehicles by correcting the software in order to prevent the failure of these devices. Any repairs should be carried out for free.
