Chrysler Recall Effectiveness Under Investigation
An air bag recall involving hundreds thousands of Chrysler SUV’s may not have worked.
Now US safety regulators are investigating.
The auto company recalled older-model Jeep Grand Cherokees and Libertys in 2012 because the air bags could inflate without a crash, causing injuries.
Chrysler installed an electrical filter to try and stop electrical spikes on air bag circuits.
But even after that, the company received six more reports of air bags inflating without a crash.
The National Traffic Safety Administration says it is investigating whether the recall is effective.
The recall affected Libertys from the 2002 and 2003 model years and Grand Cherokees from 2002 to 2004.
