If the passenger airbag deploys in any car it means you've had a bad day. However, if you own a 2016 Viper, it's been a really bad day. The vehicles have defective welds on the passenger airbag chutes that can cause the airbag doors to detach when the airbags deploy.

Well, really bad for the passenger I guess.

"Additionally, Chrysler says 14 of the driver-side airbags will be repaired due to wires that may be pinched and can cause the airbags to fail in a crash."

OK, really bad for everyone then.
