Chrysler has just announced two separate recalls affecting the Dodge Journey and Dodge Ram 1500 pickup.
A total of 65,180 Dodge Journey models are affected dating from the 2009 model year. The issue involves wires in a wiring harness that could break over time, causing the side airbags to not deploy in a crash.
No accidents or injuries have been reported in association with the issue and Chrysler says that were the wires to break, the driver would be alerted by a light on the dash.
The Dodge Ram 1500 recall involves a rear axle bearing that could seize, potentially causing a crash. A total of 56,611 vehicles are covered by the recall.
According to Chrysler, the bearings were not sufficiently lubricated when installed and so the issue should become obvious within the first several hundred miles put on the truck.
Owners of both vehicles will be notified in February.
