The latest Durango recall wasn't caused by faulty parts, but sheer incompetence. Dodge is positive that the side-curtain airbag fasteners work just fine but they may have been loosely installed or, in some cases, not at all!

The installation error may prevent the airbags from properly deploying in a crash.

About the Side-Curtain Fastener Recall

  • The automaker believes the problems happened during manufacturing between March 1, 2020 and February 15, 2021.
  • The recall (#Y16) affects over 3,000 2020-2021 model years and is expected to begin June 11, 2021.
