Vehicles Affected: Approximately 2,000 model-year 2014-16 Jeep Cherokee SUVs manufactured between July 29, 2013, and Feb. 5, 2016
The Problem: The seat fasteners on the first- or second-row seats may not have been tightened to the proper torque specification. Loose fasteners may allow the seats to move, increasing the risk of an injury to the seat occupants in a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the seats or seat sets for free.
What Owners Should Do: Jeep manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners Sept. 23. Owners can call Jeep at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
