Chrysler is recalling 1.9 million cars and SUVs over airbag and chair belt defects associated to 3 deaths.

The defects could forestall air-bags and involuntary seat-belt tighteners from being deployed scrupulously in crashes, Fiat Chrysler (FCAM) said. It did not divulge a builder of a inadequate equipment.

“The association is wakeful of 3 fatalities and 5 injuries that might potentially be associated to this condition,” it pronounced in a statement.

The automaker pronounced it no longer uses a inadequate equipment. It was used in models done between 2010 and 2014.

The removed models are: 2010 Chrysler Sebring, 2011-2014 Chrysler 200, 2010-2012 Dodge Caliber, 2010-2014 Dodge Avenger, and 2010-2014 Jeep Patriot and Compass SUVs.

Most of a cars — an estimated 1.4 million — were sole in a U.S. The residue were sole in Canada (143,000), Mexico (82,000) and a rest of a universe (284,000).

This is not a initial vast scale remember announced by Fiat Chrysler this year.

In April, it recalled 1.1 million cars and SUVs worldwide since of a rigging selector problem that killed actor Anton Yelchin. The problem was a treacherous rigging selector that could lead some drivers to trust that their car was in Park when it wasn’t.
