From the introduction of the first safety rim wheels in 1941, to being the first automotive company to make airbags standard in 1988, safety has long been first priority for Chrysler Group LLC brands. Today, our approach to safety and security is still leading the way, with collision avoidance technologies like our Blind Spot Monitoring System and protection features like our Electronic Stability Control.
Chrysler Group is committed to helping keep drivers and passengers safe when riding in motor vehicles. We employ a twofold safety/security approach: conventional passive safety features, such as pretensioning and constant-force seat belt retractors; and supplemental front and side air bags,1 combined with active safety accident-avoidance features, including precise steering, handling and braking.
In 2011, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded 11 Chrysler Group vehicles with the Top Safety Pick Award, including the Chrysler Town & Country, Chrysler 300, Chrysler 200, Dodge Grand Caravan, Dodge Charger, Dodge Avenger, Dodge Journey, Dodge Durango, FIAT 500, Jeep Grand Cherokee® and Jeep Patriot.2
In addition, a high level of security is offered via the Sentry Key® engine immobilizer. This provides additional in-vehicle theft protection.
Chrysler Group’s SeatCheck program offers a directory of more than 4,000 inspection locations staffed by trained and certified child safety seat technicians. A list of technicians is available toll-free at 1-866-SEAT-CHECK.
