New Recall June 28th rear control arm

From a couple news sources:

Fiat Chrysler said Sunday that an error in the assembly process earlier this month could cause a component in those vehicles to break, leaving the driver with “rear-end instability and/or reduced braking power,” according to a press release.

The company wants owners of the cars to stop driving them and arrange an on-site inspection.

Another 7,690 vehicles may also be recalled because they were built during the same eight-day period, but Fiat Chrysler has only identified 65 currently on the road. (The remainder are on dealer lots or in transit to dealers.)

Customers can check to see if their vehicles are affected by entering a VIN number, which can be found at the base of the SUVs’ windshields, on this website.

Model-year 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durango SUVs assembled from June 12 through June 20 are included in the recall. The company said about 5,608 are believed to be in the U.S., 255 are in Canada and 65 are in Mexico.

The issue was discovered during an internal review of the assembly process for the SUVs, and the company halted shipments of the SUVs from its plant. Assembly has since resumed at the plant after the problems were corrected, according to Fiat Chrysler’s statement.


From another article:

Almost 7,700 other 2015 Grand Cherokees and Durangos — including about 5,100 in the United States — also need to be inspected, but those vehicles are either on their way to dealerships or on dealer lots. No more than 13 percent of those vehicles are thought to have the defect, Mr. Mayne said. Federal regulations prohibit the sale of new vehicles before a recall is carried out.

The automaker said a component called the rear control arm was not properly heat-treated and could break. Fiat Chrysler was not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the problem, which was detected by the supplier.

Re: New Recall June 28th rear control arm

Been somewhat extended by recall R38
Quote:
NOTE: All of the involved vehicles in this recall were also involved in Safety Recall
R33. Due to a change in the build date ranges of the lower control arms, a second
inspection of most of the vehicles that were involved in Safety Recall R33 is required.
Quote:
NOTE: This recall applies only to the above vehicles built from June 12, 2015 through
June 20, 2015 (MDH 061207 through 062015).
IMPORTANT: Many of the vehicles within the above build period have already been
inspected or repaired and, therefore, have been excluded from this recall.
