More Than 330,000 Vehicles Recalled Over Defective Coils
For the second time in a month, Chrysler is recalling a substantial number of its vehicles for safety-related issues.
The latest recall involves 331,401 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles because rear coil springs may have been incorrectly installed, which can cause the springs to detach while driving.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the recall covers certain 2022-2023 models as well as 2021-2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee L SUVs.
Chrysler says it will mail notification letters to owners of these vehicles by July 28 outlining the free repairs that will address the issue.
This is the second recall for the Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs in the past month. The previous recall involved an incorrectly assembled steering column intermediate shaft that could disconnect from the u-joint, and result in a loss of steering control.
