WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Chrysler is recalling nearly 3,000 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokees because of a problem affecting the passenger-side airbag's ability to deploy. 

The airbag may not properly deploy through the instrument panel tear seam, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Cherokee vehicles included in the recall were manufactured between Oct. 22 and Nov. 12 of this year. 

Dealers will replace the top cover of the instrument panel free of charge. 

Vehicle owners can contact Chrysler at (800) 853-1403.
