Chrysler, due to some defect in the operating system of the car's airbags while on the road , is planning to wind up it production of the Jeep Liberty SUV and Jeep Cherokee. The figures of the number of Jeeps being recalled is 919,000

In an attempt to replace the Jeep there will be 775,000 Jeeps introduced in United States. In addition to that the ones sold win Canada will also be replaced and that figures rises to 49,000 along with 22,000 sold in Mexico and few more distributed around the globe.
The National Highway Safety Authority was of the opinion that there had not been any serious causality reported in the road accidents due to the airbag issues.

The growing problems due to the airbag's defect have raised the graph of it. The other airbag victims involved in the issue are Ford, Honda and Hyundai.

NHTSA stated that the Grand Jeep Cherokee produced during the years 2002-2004 and the Liberty SUV produced in the year 2002-2003 were the ones came up with the problems of air bag. The investigation into the problem showed that the issue was linked with the computer operation of the airbag.

A study shows that the in normal condition the airbags are operated by sensors installed, they not only enables the airbags to operate but also indicates when and where the accident occurred. Whereas the sensors installed in the latest models are updated they not only perform the previous function rather they detect the severity of the collision and the placement of the occupants. The defected Jeeps were found to have their airbags inflate even if there had not been any collision.

The representative of the Chrysler said that the airbag problem was noticed in very few Jeep Liberty and Grand Cherokee which were on the move.
NHTSA, after investigating for one year came up with the statistics that the problem due to air bags was noticed 215 times in which there had been 81 minor injuries. They were also of the opinion that these minor injuries may be because of the carelessness of the drivers too.

Chrysler was positive in saying that they are going to compensate the owners of the Jeep by electrical replacement system and that too free of the cost.

In the near past Automotive industry has come across many air bags issues rising. This issues left the manufacturer with no other option but to recall.
In July 220,000 Sonata Sedan and Santa Fe SUV by Hyundai were recalled in the year 2007-2009. The reason for this was that the sensors installed in these vehicles didn't work well and was unable to protect the small children. 23,000 Late models of Sonata were also recalled ,because of the airbag problem, by the same maker.

The last month Ford also faced the same problem and had to recall 154,000 Fiesta models due to the problem arose because of the airbag operating system. Already the maker has recalled 1.5 million vehicle due to air bag problem.Honda recalled 2.5 million vehicles.
