Chrysler sure is having a ton of problems in the last two years. First, the company had to recall 1.4 million vehicles over hacking fears. Nearly a year later it was included in a massive recall over airbag inflators, then another month later, more than 300,000 cars were recalled over a wiring problem.

To make matters worse, Chrysler's problems don't end there. The company announced that it's now recalling 1.9 million vehicles for another air bag defect that has already been linked to three fatalities and five injuries.

It turns out, the part of the car that deploys the airbag has a software problem the prevents the airbags from deploying "in certain rare circumstances."

Affected cars were sold between 2010 and 2014 and include the following models:

  • Chrysler Sebring
  • 200
  • Dodge Caliber
  • Avenger
  • Jeep Patriot
  • Compass SUVs

Is your car part of the recall?

If you drive one of the car models above and bought it between 2010 and 2014, it's a good idea to take the car back to the dealership for repairs once Fiat announces it's ready to accept repair jobs.
