Jeep parent automaker Stellantis is recalling more than 338,000 of its standard two-row Jeep Grand Cherokee and three-row Grand Cherokee L SUVs over defective suspension components.

Affected vehicles include model-year 2021-23 Grand Cherokee Ls and model-year 2022-23 Grand Cherokees. The issue is over damaged pinch bolts in the suspension’s upper control arms, which can result in a loss of clamp load between the upper control arm ball joint and the steering knuckle. This can cause the wheel to fall outward, resulting in an unexpected loss of control and increasing the risk of a crash. Stellantis says drivers may notice a strange noise when driving over bumps as an indicator of the defect.

As a fix, dealers will replace the upper control arm pinch bolts for free. Stellantis will notify vehicle owners April 12, but those with further questions can contact the automaker at 800-853-1403 (Stellantis’ number for this recall is 10B), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or visit its website to check your vehicle identification number and learn more.
