The NHTSA said that the rear coil springs in some 2022-2023 MY Jeep Grand Cherokees and 2021-2023 MY Jeep Grand Cherokee Ls were not installed correctly, allowing them to come out of position while the SUV is moving.

About 13% of Jeep models from that time period, or 331,401, are part of the recall, the NHTSA said.

SUVs that are not part of the recall were built after the timeframe where the springs were installed incorrectly or have an air suspension system, the NHTSA said.

Dealers will inspect and repair the rear coil spring assemblies if needed, free of charge.

Owners will be alerted to the recall in late July, but they can also contact Chrysler customer service at 800-853-1403.
