United States: recall of nearly 340,000 Jeep Grand Cherokees for steering wheel problems

The automobile manufacturer FCA US (Stellantis) has launched a recall in the United States of nearly 340,000 Grand Cherokee model vehicles from the Jeep brand, due to a defect on a part of the steering wheel which can lead to loss of control of the vehicle . “Routine review of a customer comment led to an investigation by the group which discovered that 2021 through 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee L models” were equipped with a defective torque bolt, explained FCA US in a press release.

According to the recall notice issued by the US Highway Safety Agency (NHTSA), this defect can ultimately cause the steering wheel to tip and lead to loss of control of the vehicle. “FCA US has not received any reports of accidents or injuries related” to this defect, the manufacturer said.

“Drivers are likely to notice abnormal noise or vibration when driving over bumps,” he said. Owners of the 338,238 vehicles sold in the United States are advised to go to a dealership, which will replace this bolt when it is defective, FCA US said, estimating that 1% of vehicles could be affected. The affected vehicles are the 2021-2023 Grand Cherokee L and the 2022-2023 Grand Cherokee, according to the NHTSA. The Stellantis group was born from the merger in January 2021 of the French manufacturers Peugeot-Citroën (PSA) and the Italian-American Fiat Chrysler (FCA).
