8/9/2017 - NEWARK, OH
RECALL S61 OCCUPANT RESTRAINT CONTROL MODULE. I WAS NOTIFIED OCTOBER OF 2016 OF THIS RECALL, STATING THE FIX WOULD BE AVAILABLE IN JUNE OF THIS YEAR. MY AIR BAG LIGHT CAME ON IN JANUARY. A LOCAL AUTOSHO DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM AS THE RECALL. THE LOCAL DEALERSHIP SAID THEY COULDN'T DO ANYTHING UNTIL THE FIX BECAME AVAILABLE IN JUNE, DIDNT OFFER TO HELP GET ME INTO A SAFER VEHICLE. THEY JUST SAID NOTHING COULD BE DONE AT THE TIME. COME JUNE, THE FIX WAS PUSHED TILL AUGUST. I'M IN TOUCH WITH THE DEALERSHIP NOW, AND THEY HAVE SAID THAT PARTS ARE ON HOLD, AND THEY ARE WAITING FOR CHRYSLER TO RELEASE THE PARTS. I HAVE TWO YOUNG CHILDREN IN THE CAR WITH ME AT ALL TIMES. THIS CAR IS NOT SAFE TO DRIVE, AND CHRYSLER IS NOT FIXING THE PROBLEM IN A TIMELY MANNER.
