It’s not a great month for Chrysler, as they have now had to add a new model to their ever-growing recall list this year, this time round the recalls concern the 2003-2004 Dodge Viper models. However, we have been informed that they have yet to announce a remedy for the issue.
Not all versions of the 2003 and 2004 Dodge Viper are affected by this recall, so if you have any doubts then you can check by entering your VIN HERE. Those units affected would have been manufactured from the start of November 2001 to June 30, 2004.
The reason for the Dodge Viper recalls is due to the airbag or seat belt pretensioners being activated involuntarily while the vehicle is in motion, which is due to a faulty air bag module. If this were to happen then this could cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle because of the shock or the air bag restricting your view of the road.
According to Chrysler if your Dodge Viper is on the recall list then your nearest dealer will repair the issue free of charge, although owners should be notified in writing in due course.
The only problem here is that Chrysler has yet to announce when they will begin to fix this issue, although they have said is that it will be later this year. This will not fill those affected by this full of hope, as they are uncertain if they should drive their Viper or not.
If you have any worries then we would suggest you call Chrysler on this phone number 1-800-247-9753 or if you have trouble getting through then call the NHTSA on 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).
