Recall Alert: 2018 Jeep Compass

Statement: Air-bag Module

November 22, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 7,000 U.S.-market SUVs in customer hands to replace their front passenger-side air bags.

A supplier has advised FCA US that, during its air-bag module assembly process, loose fasteners may have inadvertently fallen undetected into a small number of modules. These modules then entered the supply chain and were installed in some 2018 Jeep Compass SUVs during production.

The number of affected vehicles is believed to be less than one percent of the recall population. However, should such a vehicle be subject to an impact that causes front passenger air-bag deployment, loose fasteners may pose a hazard.

The Company is unaware of any related injuries, accidents, warranty claims or complaints. Nevertheless, customers whose vehicles were produced between Sept. 5 and Nov. 19 of this year are advised to avoid using the front passenger seat until the situation is remedied.

Customers who own certain 2018 Jeep Compass SUVs will be advised when service becomes available. Notices will be mailed next month; customers are urged to heed the instructions therein.

In the interim, customers may learn if their vehicles are included in the recall by entering their Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) at or

Customers with concerns also may call the FCA US Recall Information Center at (800) 853-1403.

Additional vehicles, now in dealer hands, also are covered by the campaign. These will be remedied before delivery to customers.

The recall also affects an estimated 1,000 sold vehicles in Canada, Mexico and a limited number of markets outside the NAFTA region.

As in the U.S., additional vehicles are in dealer hands or within the Company’s control. These will be remedied before delivery to customers.
