Chrysler is issuing a recall for certain Dodge Dart sedans because the airbags might not deploy properly.

The special “Mopar 13” Dart was first unveiled during the 2013 Chicago Auto Show and is now the subject of a recall. Chrysler announced that it is calling back 374 of its Dart sedans because the front seat mounted side airbags might not have been installed properly. According to NHTSA documents, the affected models all seem to have Chrysler’s special “Mopar 13” package meant to enhance performance.

Owners will be notified later this month if their vehicle falls under the recall, which marks the second time Chrysler has issued such a campaign on its compact sedans. The first was announced in June when a cold weather stalling issue led Chrysler to launch a campaign involving 14,800 Darts.
