Vehicles Affected: Approximately 182,000 model-year 2016-17 Jeep Wrangler SUVs manufactured between June 16, 2015, and Aug. 14, 2016

The Problem: In certain crash conditions, the front impact sensor wiring may be pulled until it detaches before the occupant restraint controller can receive a signal. If this happens, neither of the frontal airbags nor seat-belt pretensioners will deploy, increasing the risk of an injury. Jeep manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said it is not aware of any injuries or accidents related to this issue and that all of the affected model-year 2017 vehicles remain in dealer hands.

The Fix: The automaker said a remedy is still in development. Dealers will make the necessary fix, once one is determined, for free.

What Owners Should Do: FCA did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to for more info.
