Chrysler has issued a recall of approximately 3,660 Dodge Viper vehicles due to an airbag defect that can cause the airbag to inadvertently deploy while the vehicle is in operation. The recall affects certain 2003 and 2004 Dodge Viper vehicles manufactured from November 1, 2001, through June 30, 2004. The inadvertent deployment of the airbags and/or seat belt pretensioners could increase the risk of enhanced injury to occupants and the possibility of a crash.

This recall schedule has not been determined, but once set dealers will inspect the vehicle and perform the necessary service free of charge. Owners may contact Chrysler directly at 1-800-853-1403 and reference recall no. N13. Additional details can also be found by referencing NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 13V040000.
