FCA US is recalling 1,824 2014-2016 model-year Jeep Cherokee SUVs because the seat fasteners on the first or second row seats may not be tightened to the proper torque specification, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.
The recall covers Cherokee vehicles manufactured from July 29, 2013, to Feb. 5, 2016.
“Loose fasteners may allow the seats to move, increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupants in the event of a crash,” NHTSA warned on its website.
Dealers will replace the seats or seat sets, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on Sept. 23.
Vehicle owners can reach FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) customer service at (800) 853-1403. The automaker’s number for this recall is S63.
