87K Jeep Grand Cherokees Recalled
Stellantis North America, which owns the Chrysler brand, issued a recall for two of its Jeep Grand Cherokee models due to an issue with the steering column.
Specifically, the recall covers 89,372 of the 2022-2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2021-2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee L vehicles.
Apparently, the steering column’s intermediate shaft was incorrectly assembled and could disconnect from the u-joint.
If this happens, the driver could lose control of steering the vehicle and potentially crash, according to a safety recall report filed by Chrysler with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Chrysler Recalled the Following Vehicles:
- 2022-2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee (53,965)
- 2021-2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee L (35,407)
Owners of the affected Jeep vehicles may have noticed a noise when turning just before the intermediate shaft disconnects or too much play in the steering wheel as they drive their Jeep.
The automaker will notify owners of the recalled vehicles by mail beginning on July 7. There is no charge for the dealership to repair these vehicles and replace the intermediate shaft and assembly parts.
