Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has issued a recall for the WK Grand Cherokee fitted with a tow bar kit, over fears bolts and washers on the kit could come loose while towing.
If the bolts and washers come loose, there’s a risk the tow bar could detach while towing, putting drivers and other roads users at risk.
FCA estimates 2350 tow bars are affected, and says there are no reported injuries or accidents related to the fault at this point.
The parts were sold after May 31, 2017, and carry the part numbers LA82210140 or LA82210141.
Owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted by mail and advised to stop using the tow bar, before a second letter notifies them when parts are in stock.
