"takata recall"my wife got in a accident rear ending another car that stomped on breaks as she was trying to switch lanes her brakes did not clamp properly and her airbag did not deploy she was going 45mph on hwy 70 in durham, nc. She suffered injuries to her neck, shoulders, knees, and right eye. And our car received damages to the front driver side not driveable. After hearing from a mechanic that the airbag should have deploy and Dodge has a recall going on I did some research it was true. And my car did have a recall for the airbags since September of 2016 but I was never notified by Dodge or takata. I have own this car since 2013 brand new and have been driving for over 3 years, at any point in time during that me and my wife could have gotten into a really bad accident and died because the airbags didn't work. I would not have bought the car if I knew this, I was lied to by Dodge and sport durst where I purchased the car from and I want justice.

"takata recall" on 1/5/17 my wife rear ended another driver after they slammed on brakes and my wife's brakes skirted cause sever damaged to the driver side of the car leaving her at fault and at the time my insurance lapse on the car. But the airbag did not deploy and she suffered injuries to her knees neck, shoulders and eye. I found Dodge has a recall for my make and model for the airbags but never told me and refused to help in any way and takata does not have a recall for my car for the airbags but for other Dodge models.

I received a letter informing me about this safety recall in October 2016. As of yet there is no fix and this is my only vehicle for transportation as of now. This is unacceptable and taking too long for such a safety recall.

I received notice stating that there is a current safety recall for : the potential loss of air bag and seat belt pretensioner deployment capability in such crash events may increase the risk of injury in a crash. It was recalled in oct2016 we are in jan2017 and I have yet to hear anything and we have two of these same vehicles. We have young children riding in these vehicles and we commute for work daily. This is a great concern!

I received a important safety recall from Fiat Chrysler automobiles for a faulty occupant restraint controller in my vehicle. I called Chrysler customer care and was told that at this time there is no known fix for the problem. I was also told that there have only been five cases of injury out of the thousands of car owners with this problem. I was told that there is a chance that injury could ensue but it was unlikely. I have the right to not put my family in danger and would like to have my car bought back. It is unsafe to drive my vehicle and need assistance in getting this problem remedied as soon as possible so me and my family can safely drive on the highway.

I recieved a recall notice from fca telling me that my air bags and seat belts might not work in a crash and there is a recall but they don't have remedy available and they will contact me when they figure out how to fix it. I have small childeren and if I get into a car crash I hope that my seat belts and air bags would work and for Dodge to tell me not to worry even thou they might not work is unacceptable.
