Chrysler 300, Jeep Wrangler join Takata recall

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has issued a recall for the 2014-15 Chrysler 300 and 2014-16 Jeep Wrangler as part of the ongoing Takata airbag campaign. Vehicles affected by this notice are fitted with faulty passenger-side airbags, though are labelled with the less-dangerous 'beta' rating. As the airbag gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the inflator propellant to degrade over time.

Where those cars were designed by General Motors global teams – with a strong Australian influence – for American tastes, the Enspire is aimed squarely at the burgeoning Chinese market.
