Fiat 500L Recalled Over Airbag Issue

Chrysler Group is calling back about 30,000 Fiat 500L vehicles over an issue with its knee airbags. 

In the event of an accident, the knee airbags equipped on the 500L may not deploy in the correct position for  passengers who are not wearing their seatbelt. If this happens, the benefits of the knee airbags are nullified.

Customer will be notified of the issue within 60 days, and the can have their knee airbags replaced at any Chrysler dealership free of charge.
