Chrysler is nowrecalling an estimated 617,000 vehicles. The decision to widen the recall was established on December 11 after pressure from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA). Initially limited to high-humidity regions like Florida and Puerto Rico, Chrysler is now expanding their recall as far west as Texas. New reports reveal that humidity may affect the compound used to inflate the airbags, causing them to deploy too forcefully and expel shrapnel.
