Just the Facts:

WASHINGTON Chrysler is recalling 1,624 2013-'14 SRT Viper cars in the U.S. because the front airbags may not deploy with enough velocity, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"Due to inaccurate seat position sensors, the frontal airbags may deploy with a lower velocity than designed for the actual seat position," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "An airbag that deploys at a lower velocity than designed may increase the risk of personal injury."

Chrysler said it is unaware of any related injuries or crashes.

The affected vehicles were built from November 28, 2012 to June 26, 2014.

Dealers will install a metal shim on the detection plate to correct the problem. The recall is expected to begin on October 24. Owners can contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.

Edmunds says: This recall doesn't get going for a few weeks. If you have an immediate concern, contact your dealer.
