Recalling 350,000 cars – the wheels can fall off

The Stellantis group has to go through a whole series of recalls. A total of 350,000 cars must go to the workshop. Among other things because the wheels risk falling off.

It is not only Toyota that deals with potentially loose wheels. Now the world's fourth largest car group, Stellantis, has to issue a total of three recalls.

In total, it concerns more than 350,000 cars. But the largest is the recall at Jeep, where it is feared that the wheels on 338,283 Grand Cherokee models from 2021 to 2023 may fall off.

The bolt that secures the upper part of the support arm to the wheel spindle can shake loose. And in the worst case, it can mean that the wheels fall off the car.

This is according to the US traffic safety authorities.

From Jeep, it sounds like some control arms were damaged during production itself. In cars with the defective control arm, the owners will notice that the steering becomes worse and worse over time. To eventually become impossible in some cases.

And even though Jeep is recalling the many hundreds of thousands of cars, the brand believes that the fault is only found in one percent of the cars. That is, in 3,382 cars.

If necessary, technicians will replace the problematic bolt. However, this does not mean that the cars are otherwise free of problems.

Just below the Grand Cherokee must also have checked the control of the automatic headlights. Jeep believes it has found a fault that causes the main beam not to come on.

Finally, there may be problems with the seat belt alarm in the just under 29,000 RAM version of the Fiat Ducato van. A car that in our latitudes is also known as the Peugeot Boxer and Citroën Jumper.
