The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued important safety recall information on Saturday.
2.12 million vehicles have been recalled. These include Acura MDX; Dodge Viper; Jeep Liberty; Jeep Grand Cherokee; Honda Odyssey; Pontiac Vibe; and Toyota Corolla, Avalon, and Matrix.
According to a release, the vehicles were subject to recalls in 2012, 2013 and 2014 that resulted from NHTSA investigations to address a problem with an electronic component that might cause airbags or seat belt pretensioners (devices that tighten your seat belt) to deploy when they should not.
The NHTSA recently determined that a small number of vehicles that had been fixed under those recalls had experienced inadvertent airbag deployments, and the agency urged all three automakers to issue new recalls.
Below is a list of recalled vehicles:
• 2002-2003 Jeep Liberty and 2002-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokees (about 750,000 vehicles);
• 2003-2004 Honda Odyssey; and 2003 Acura MDX (about 370,000 vehicles);
• 2003-2004 Pontiac Vibe; Dodge Viper; and Toyota Corolla, Toyota Matrix, and Toyota Avalon (about 1 million vehicles, not all of which were sold in the United States)
