There is a safety recall on the driver airbag inflator. The Fiat Chrysler website claims that the part is available and should contact a dealer to have it repaired. I called the dealer and they claim there are not any parts and do not know when there will be any parts.

I've tried calling several dealerships to get the airbag fixed under recall R25 (Chrysler recall 15V-313) and there are no parts available for several months. Contacted Chrysler via chat window and all I got was I'd be notified when the parts were ready.

The key easily disengages from the "run" position and cuts off the engine, causing loss of steering and control. This can even occur if the key is accidentally bumped by your knee. This is identical to the reported affects of the NHTSA campaign number: 14V373000. My 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 is not listed in that notice. This is a very dangerous issue, and doing an internet search there are other owners that have reported the same issue.
