Airbag Issue Prompts Recall of 4,278 Dodge Viper Sports Cars

By Alpert Schreyer on February 28, 2013

As reported by Reuters in its U.S. edition, 4,278 Dodge Viper sports cars are being recalled globally by the Chrysler Group, LLC. The recall is being conducted in order to repair a part that could cause the airbags to deploy inadvertently. This most recent recall is an expansion of another recall administered last year in the fall.

In 2012, 923,000 model year 2002-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty SUVs were recalled for the same issue.

If you or someone you love has suffered injury due to a poorly manufactured or designed vehicle, Michael Schreyer and the Alpert Schreyer personal injury legal team will do everything in their power to help you or your loved one receive the maximum compensation possible for an incident that could have been prevented.

The Problem

The potential exists for the front airbags or seat belt pre-tensioners to inadvertently deploy even without vehicle contact.

Summary of Vehicles Affected

Dodge Viper sports cars from the model years 2003 and 2004 are included in this latest recall. 3,660 of the cars were sold in the United States; 440 cars were sold in Canada; 10 were sold in Mexico; and 168 were sold in the rest of the world.

A spokesperson for the Chrysler Group, LLC said he was not aware of any inadvertent air-bag deployments reported by owners of the cars.


According to documents that were filed with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, customers should be notified of the recall late in February, 2013.

Recalled Vipers will be fitted with a harness filter. The filter will enable a control module to manage deployment of airbags and pre-tensioners.
