Some Jeep recalls include the worldwide recalls made by FCA US in 2012 for more than 400,000 Jeep Grand Cherokees and the recall of an estimated 254,369 Jeep Compasses and Patriots in 2014. FCA US also recalled more than 200,000 2014 Jeep Cherokees in 2015.
According to Jeepproblems.com, some of the most recalled Jeep units include the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Wrangler, Jeep Liberty and Jeep Commander. As of 2015, the Grand Cherokee has been recalled for 215 times while the Jeep Cherokee has been called back for 180 times. The cars have been recalled for a number of reasons, including issues with the fuel-pump relay, clutch assembly, electrical system and front passenger airbags. The most common reasons for recalls include a faulty TIMP and broken window regulators.
Jeep issues a safety recall if the automaker or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration finds a problem that risks the safety of the occupants and affects the safe operation of the vehicle. The FCA notifies the owners of the units and corrects the problem free of charge even if the car is out of warranty and the car is a second-hand unit. Jeep also issues campaigns if the units need to be called back for repairs that are not safety based, such as emission problems.
