Posted on June 6, 2013

Jeep Patriot and Compass automobiles of the 2010 through 2012 model years have been recalled by Chrysler because of a safety issue that might crop up during certain crashes.  On an astounding 254,396 vehicles, the side airbags or the seatbelt pretensioners might not deploy properly because of a software malfunction.  This condition would most likely take place during a rollover crash, and because of this, the persons inside the automobiles could find themselves facing a greater threat of injury.  Although the recall won’t start until July, owners will be able to bring their vehicles in to obtain a software correction at no cost.  Notification will be provided by Chrysler.
