354,000 Newer Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Cherokee L SUVs Recalled
More than 354,000 Jeeps are being recalled over a safety issue involving its rear coil springs because they could fall off while driving.
Stellantis issued the worldwide recall on Tuesday for 114,302 of the 2022 and 2023 Grand Cherokee SUVs and 217,099 of the 2021 to 2023 Grand Cherokee L SUVs, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Specifically, the automaker says the springs were likely installed incorrectly during the production of these vehicles. Stellantis reports the springs may detach from the vehicle as it is moving. This is a major safety risk as it could lead to a crash.
So far the Jeep parent company is aware of at least 17 warranty claims as well as two customer assistance reports and two field reports. The vehicles affected were built between May 17, 2021, and May 31, 2023. The factory installed the rear coil spring out of position during production.
Fortunately, there are no known collisions or injuries as of May 25th, 2023.

The report states that SUVs with air suspensions are not affected.
Finally, owners are advised to take their vehicles to the dealership for inspection and replacement of assemblies as needed.
Stellantis will send out a letter notifying owners beginning on July 28.
