Here is some information on the product:
Chrysler Group LLC has recently issued a recall of 919,545 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Jeep Liberty SUVs produced and sold between 2002 and 2004 due to an issue that causes airbags to deploy without warning or instigation, causing distraction or injury to the driver or passenger.
An October 2011 study on the SUVs found 215 cases of inadvertent deployment of airbags, resulting in 81 cases of injury in the United States. Fortunately, no accidents came as a result of the airbags. However, this is only limited data, and Chrysler is recommending that owners of these vehicles visit a dealership to have an additional harness installed to prevent accidental deployment.
