1,200 Jeep Compass SUVs recalled in India over airbag issue

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) India has issued a recall of an estimated 1,200 Jeep Compass SUVs for an airbag issue. The front passenger side airbag will be replaced as loose fasteners may have been left behind during the assembly process of the airbag module, which may pose a hazard if the airbag deploys during an accident.

According to the car maker, out of the 1,200 units recalled less than 1% are expected to be affected by the airbag issue. Till now, there have been no reports of injuries caused due to the loose fasteners, however FCA India has advised customers to refrain from using the front passenger seat until the issue is resolved.

FCA India and authorized dealers will notify customers about the recall in the coming weeks. The replacement of the front passenger side airbag will be carried out free of cost.
