Chrysler Recalling 630,300 Jeeps Due To Defects

Chrysler  is recalling 630,300 newer-model Jeep SUVs for defects.

“Some 409,200 Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot SUVs from model years 2010 to 2012 will be recalled because a software glitch may delay deployment of side airbags and seatbelt tensioners in the event of a rollover, Chrysler and regulators said,” according to Reuters.

“Also, 221,100 Jeep Wrangler SUVs with 3.6-liter engines from model years 2012 and 2013 will be recalled because of possible leaking of transmission fluid. Chrysler said a component of the Wrangler’s power steering system may rub against a transmission fluid cooling line, causing the fluid to leak.”

“Chrysler, majority-owned by Italy’s Fiat SpA, said it is not aware of any injuries or accidents caused by either of the issues.”
