Stellantis: Park Older Models Due to 3 Takata Air Bag Deaths

DETROIT (AP) – Stellantis and the U.S. government are warning owners of 276,000 older vehicles to stop driving them after Takata air bags apparently exploded in three more vehicles, killing the drivers.

The company, formerly Fiat Chrysler, is telling people to stop driving Dodge Magnum wagons, Dodge Challenger and Charger muscle cars and Chrysler 300 sedans from the 2005 through 2010 model years.

Stellantis said that it confirmed the air bag inflators blew apart in two cases, killing two people.

The company suspects an inflator rupture in another case that also killed a driver.
