Fiat Chrysler Automobiles India recalls an estimated 1,200 Jeep Compass SUVs, already retailed to customers, for replacement of the front passenger air bag. FCA claims that the affected Jeep Compass SUVs is expected to be less than one percent (1%) of the total recall population.

In a statement, FCA 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”.


However, should such a vehicle be subject to an impact that causes the front passenger airbag to deploy, loose fasteners may pose a hazard. Thus, FCA India will replace the passenger airbag on an estimated 1,200 Jeep Compass SUVs to eliminate this concern. However, the Company is still 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.

In the coming week, FCA India and their authorized Dealers will directly make contacts with the customers whose Jeep Compass SUVs require a front passenger air bag replacement, and confirm appointments at authorized workshops. This replacement exercise will be carried out at no cost to customers.

Recently, Jeep Compass SUV has received a maximum five-star safety rating by the Euro NCAP. The SUV scored positive ratings in all categories – including adult protection, child protection, pedestrian protection and driving assistance safety systems.
