Keep an eye out for any recall notices if you have a KL:

Chrysler will recall more than 228,000 vehicles because their airbags could unexpectedly inflate without a crash. The company will upgrade software governing side-curtain and seat-mounted side airbags in Jeep Cherokees from the 2014-15 model years, including more than 168,000 vehicles in the United States

I heard it was Jeep Grand Cherokees. Sometimes the media has trouble distinguishing the two.

Just to be certain - here is the NHTSA Campaign ID: 15V041

Can be found here - It specifies the Jeep Cherokee, 2014 and 2015 years.

Quote:
SUMMARY: Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Jeep Cherokee vehicles manufactured January 1, 2013, to November 19, 2014. The affected vehicles may experience unintended side curtain and seat air bag deployment during vehicle operation.

CONSEQUENCE: If the air bags deploy unexpectedly during vehicle operation, it can increase the risk of personal injury and increase the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will re-flash the occupant restraint control module software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on March 26, 2015. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is R05.

NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
