Defect Description

Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 SRT Viper vehicles manufactured November 28, 2012, to June 26, 2014. Due to inaccurate seat position sensors, the frontal air bags may deploy with a lower velocity than designed for the actual seat position.

Defect Consequence

In the event of a vehicle crash necessitating air bag deployment, an air bag that deploys at a lower velocity than designed may increase the risk of personal injury.

Defect Corrective Action

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a metal shim on the detection plate to correct the seat position sensor accuracy, free of charge. The recall began on December 20, 2014. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is P52.
