Stellantis Issues ‘Do Not Drive’ Warning Following Airbag Crash Deaths

FCA US, a subsidiary of Stellantis (STLA) and federal regulators have issued a “Do Not Drive” warning for about 276,000 vehicles after the deaths of two people in crashes that detonated the driver’s Takata airbags.

The defective airbags are suspected in the death of a third person.

The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration said the recall affects approximately 276,000 Dodge Magnums, Chargers and Challengers from the 2005 to 2010 model year and for Chrysler 300s from 2005 to 2010.

NHTSA said it was aware of several other suspected inflator failures in vehicles from other automakers, possibly due to exploding Takata airbags.
