Jeep SUVs Recalled After Airbags Go Off By Themselves Injuring Passengers

Almost 745,000 Jeep Liberty and Grand Cherokee SUVs are being recalled in the United States following a preliminary investigation from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that discovered a faulty component in the air bag control module caused airbags and/or seatbelt pretensioners to deploy without reason, injuring dozens of people.
According to a document from the NHTSA, the probe identified a total of 215 cases of inadvertent airbag deployments, in which 81 people suffered minor injuries. The government agency noted that it was not aware of any crashes related to this issue.
