Vehicles Affected: Approximately 2,700 model-year 2018 Jeep Compass SUVs
The Problem: The front lower control arms may be incorrectly welded, potentially resulting in a control-arm separation and a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the front lower control arms for free.
