Fiat Chrysler’s Australian division has recalled nine examples of its Jeep Gladiator ute, citing an issue with local regulation compliance.

The affected vehicles were sold between 1 June 2020 and 20 January 2021 (Model Years 2020-2021).

The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says: “The front bumper may not comply with Australian Design Rule (ADR) 92/00, it may not have a bumper closeout and tow hook cover.”

“If the front bumper does not have a closeout and tow hook cover, there is an increased risk of serious injury in the event of an accident,” the notice continues.

CarAdvice has contacted Fiat Chrysler Australia for further comment on the fault. This story will be updated with its response.
