2013 Dodge Durango Recalled for Airbag Malfunction

2013 Dodge Durango Recalled for Airbag Malfunction

Transport Canada has announced a 130-unit recall for the 2013 Dodge Durango because of a problem with the occupant restraint control module (ORCM).

In the event of a crash, the defective ORCM could cause the lateral airbags for the third-row seats to not deploy, greatly increasing risk to the passengers. The defect will be fixed free of charge on all affected vehicles.

While the recall only concerns cars in Canada at the moment, the issue is likely to surface in the U.S. soon.

UPDATE: Since publication, NHTSA has reported a recall for the same issue in the U.S. accounting for 1,449 units. Owners can expect to be contacted by Chrysler, but can call customer service at (800) 853-1403 or the NHTSA safety hotline at (888) 327-4236.

    It’s too bad Dodge can’t figure out how to build something that isn’t a complete hunk of cow shit. The Durango is one of the few cool-looking SUVs left. That Citadel version? Dayum. Hello laides…
