Jeep Recalls Cherokee Due to Steering Problems

JAKARTA – American car manufacturer, Jeep, recently recalled the Cherokee model. As reported by Carscoops, on Tuesday, May 23, the Cherokee models affected by the recall are the 2022-2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2021-2023 Grand Cherokee L models.

The recall was due to an installation error in the steering wheel. Due to concerns that there was a faulty steering linkage that could cause loss of steering, a total of 89,372 Jeep Cherokees were affected and recalled in the United States.

During the investigation, 15 warranty claims were found related to steering column problems, but Jeep received no reports of accidents, injuries or deaths related to steering column faults.

Jeep also analyzed that they found the center axles are not seated properly and can break and eventually cause the car to be damaged due to the inability to hold the steering wheel.

This can actually cause an accident and be a scary thing if this happens. Drivers may know this problem if they notice a loud noise when turning.

Jeep recorded the affected vehicles, a total of 53,965 Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured between 19 October 2021 and 4 April 2023. Then there were 35,401 units of Jeep Grand Cherokee L manufactured between 27 January 2021 and 4 April 2023.

To fix this, Jeep will do a recall and will check the driver’s axle. Jeep plans to begin contacting vehicle owners on July 7.
