    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (FCA) said on Friday it would recall about 925,239 of its older model vehicles in the United States for replacing airbag covers on their steering wheels after 14 possibly related injuries.

    The recall concerns 2007-2011 Dodge Nitro SUVs, 2008-2010 Chrysler Town & Country, and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans, the Italian-American automaker stated.

    The move comes after an FCA investigation that found these vehicles were geared up with certain clips that may loosen and disengage over time, and in case of a driver-side airbag deployment the clips could act as projectiles.

    Fiat Chrysler stated none of the possible injuries involved occupants of front-passenger or rear seats and that the airbags were not provided by Takata.
