Chrysler Group LLC is recalling certain model year 2013 Dodge Dart vehicles manufactured May 10, 2013, through Aug. 24, 2013 and equipped with the Mopar 13 trim package, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In the affected vehicles, the front seat mounted side airbags (SAB) may not have been properly installed into the seat.
In the event of a crash necessitating SAB deployment, the SABs may fail to deploy as intended, increasing the risk of injury.
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the SAB installation and re-install them as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in December 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N61.
