FCA Australia is recalling almost 3000 examples of the current-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee for an issue with defective bolts.

    UPDATE, 30/04/2024 6:48pm – Stellantis Australia has advised the recall notice published by the Department of Infrastructure – which cautioned the wheels may detach from the vehicle while driving – has incorrect wording.

    “Stellantis Australia is working with the Department of Infrastructure to have this rectified,” said a company spokesperson.

    The article has been updated with the revised recall notice wording.

    “The upper control arm retaining bolts may have been damaged during vehicle assembly,” the company says in its recall notice.

    “A loss of clamp load may result in your vehicle’s front wheel leaning outward which could lead to an accident and serious injury or death to the vehicle occupants and other road users.”

    • A total of 2854 vehicles are affected from 2021 to 2023, and includes both two-row Grand Cherokee and three-row Grand Cherokee L models
    • The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) list is attached here
    • The original recall notice is attached here

    If you own an affected vehicle, FCA Australia advises you to contact an authorised dealership as soon as possible to have the work carried out, free of charge.

    If you have any further questions, you can contact the company on 1800 870 714.
