FCA India Recalls 1,200 Jeep Compass SUVs
Following an FCA US LLC initiated recall, FCA India intends to recall an estimated 1,200 Jeep Compass SUVs, already retailed to customers, for replacement of the front passenger air bag.
A supplier has advised FCA that, during its airbag module assembly process, loose fasteners may have inadvertently found their way undetected into a small number of modules.
The number of affected Jeep Compass SUVs is expected to be less than one percent (1%) of the total recall population.
However, should such a vehicle be subject to an impact that causes the front passenger airbag to deploy, loose fasteners may pose a hazard. Thus, FCA India will replace the passenger airbag on an estimated 1,200 Jeep Compass SUVs to eliminate this concern.
The Company is unaware of any related injuries, accidents, warranty claims or complaints. Nevertheless, customers whose vehicles are in the affected range are advised to refrain from using the front passenger seat until the situation is remedied.
In the coming week, FCA India and their authorized Dealers will directly contact customers whose Jeep Compass SUVs require a front passenger air bag replacement, and confirm appointments at authorized workshops. This replacement exercise will be carried out at no cost to customers.
