Chrysler is trying to wiggle out of another active head restraint lawsuit. The automaker's lawyers point to technicalities in the case that don't hold up in the Arizona Consumer Fraud and Magnuson-Moss Warranty Acts. Another approach they could take would be to actually do something about the restraints that keep randomly smacking people at the base of their skull.

- Some Dodge vehicles with the same AHR systems received an extended warranty. Seems like a simple thing to do would be to extend that to every affected Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep owner.
- The active head restraints are, after all, deploying because of a cheap plastic bracket that was used presumably to save Chrysler some money.
- The case in question is Nuwer, et al., v. FCA US LLC, et al., filed in Florida.
The active head restraints in some Chrysler vehicles are handing out free concussions. A mechanical breakdown inside the restraint means they could deploy randomly at any time.
