Volkswagen and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (parent company to Jeep) are recalling select vehicles with faulty air bag crash sensors. The sensors on certain models may have been exposed to high heat during production, causing damage to the part’s soldering connections. The weakened connections may result in delayed airbag deployment or failure to deploy, increasing the risk of injury to both the driver and passenger during a crash.
