Chrysler recalls 490k vehicles due to head restraint issue
(CNN) — Chrysler is recalling nearly half a million cars because of a problem with a safety feature found on several models.
Head restraints designed to automatically move forward in rear-impact crashes to prevent neck injuries are not working properly.
That is according to a news release from the company.
Some 442,000 of the vehicles affected, the bulk of the recall, were sold in the U.S.
Chrysler said it knows of no injuries or accidents tied to the problem.
This recall comes less than a month after Chrysler reluctantly recalled 2.7 million vehicles based on a government recommendation that the company disagreed with.
