Personal Injuries Due to Defective Air Bags in Vipers.

CHristineYou buy one of the world’s fastest cars for a few good reasons: speed, class, style and safety. Safety? Yes, because if you are going to go that fast, you need to be safe. You trust the safety data sheet of the vehicle you just purchased and carry on in absolute faith.

The Chrysler Viper is just one of those cars. However, 3,600 Vipers are being recalled for defective air bags. Vehicles manufactured from November 1, 2003, through June 30, 2004, have air bags that will deploy unexpectedly in transition. There is a component in the bag that may fail and cause this. This exact same problem can also set the seat belt pretensioners off as well. All this being said, it can cause serious injury and even possibly a car crash.

Chrysler is being proactive about this recall; they are contacting owners so they will know to go to a local dealer to repair the problem free of charge. A notice will be sent expectantly this month with solutions available later on in the year. Owners of the Viper may call Chrysler at (800) 247-9753 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at (888) 327-4236 (TTY [800] 424-9153), or go to

If you have been injured in a car, whether it is a Viper or another, because of defective components in the car, contact an Illinois injury attorney to help you get compensation for injuries and vehicle. You need to make sure that the company knows about the defect so others can be saved from horrific events.
