Fiat Chrysler to recall 1,200 SUVs in India for airbag replacement
NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Italian-American carmaker Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (MI:FCHA) will recall 1,200 Jeep Compass sports utility vehicles (SUVs) sold in India, for “replacement of the front passenger air bag,” FCA India said in a statement on Thursday.
The recalls are part of a bigger recall by the company. The carmaker on Wednesday recalled 7,000 U.S.-market SUVs and 1,000 vehicles sold in Canada and Mexico for the same reason.
During the airbag module assembly process, “loose fasteners may have inadvertently found their way undetected into a small number of modules,” Fiat said in an emailed statement.
No injuries, accidents, warranty claims or complaints have been reported, the company said.
