Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has recalled the 2015-2018 Fiat 500X, over concerns about a faulty rear seat latch.

According to the company, the problem could make the rear seat back fold forward in an accident if the seatbelts aren't engaged. If a child seat is fitted using isofix anchor points, it could be compromised by the issue in a crash.

A total of 1847 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

FCA will contact owners when parts are available, likely at the end of September, and advise them to schedule a fix with their dealer.
