Tim Boyle/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Chrysler will recall nearly a million older-model Jeep vehicles because of what the company calls an inadvertent air bag deployment.

The company says that in its 2002-2003 Jeep Liberty models and 2002-2004 Grand Cherokees the air bag can inflate while someone’s driving and that it’s happened a couple hundred times, resulting in several dozen minor injuries, though no accidents.

Chrysler will recall hundreds of thousands of the SUVs so they can be repaired. The culprit, the company says, is a faulty part in the air bag control computer.

Chrysler will notify affected customers starting in January.
