In September of 2011 we reported that 7 Jeep Liberty owners has apparently had their airbags deploy at seemingly random times causing injury to the vehicle occupants.

NHTSA said on Friday that there are now 87 reports of inadvertent airbag deployment, 50 of which have resulted in injury. NHTSA is upgrading their investigation to an engineering analysis of 386,873 Jeep Liberty 2002-2003 models to try and discover the cause of the problem. ”We are cooperating fully with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration with this engineering analysis on 2002-2003 Jeep Liberty models to determine the root cause of this condition,”  said Chrysler spokesman Vince Muniga.
