Approximately 2,700 model-year 2020-21 Dodge Durango three-row SUVs are being recalled due to airbag issues. The side airbag inflatable curtain fastener may be loose or missing, causing the side curtain airbag to deploy incorrectly in the event of a crash and increasing the risk of injury.
Dodge parent company Stellantis will begin notifying owners on June 11. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will tighten or replace the side airbag curtain fastener.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
