Chrysler is recalling nearly 1,700 Dodge Durango SUVs because the rear side air bags may not work in a crash. The company said in documents posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website that some 2013 Durangos may have been built with the wrong air bag control module. So if there’s a crash behind the second-row seat, the air bags may not inflate correctly. Chrysler said it knows of no crashes or injuries. The Durangos were built April 11-July 20, 2011. Chrysler says it will notify owners and replace the module free of charge. The recall affects vehicles in the U.S., Canada and overseas.
