Faulty air bag: FCA India recalls 1,200 units of Jeep Compass
FCA India, the subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has decided to recall 1,200 Jeep Compass SUVs which are already sold in India, for replacement of the front passenger air bag, the company said in a statement. This is following an FCA US LLC initiated recall, the company added.
The company said it was unaware of any related injuries, accidents, warranty claims or complaints. “Nevertheless, customers whose vehicles are in the affected range are advised to refrain from using the front passenger seat until the situation is remedied,” it said
“A supplier has advised FCA that, during its airbag module assembly process, loose fasteners may have inadvertently found their way undetected into a small number of modules. The number of affected Jeep Compass SUVs is expected to be less than one percent (1%) of the total recall population,” the company added.
