FCA Recalls Two Models for Loose Bolts in Suspension, Seats

2016 Chrysler 200S

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has recalled its Chrysler 200 mid-size sedan and Jeep Cherokee compact crossover for faults with suspension and seat components.

FCA says that suspension attachment bolts on the Chrysler 200 may not have been checked for proper torque before leaving the assembly line. Improperly tightened fasteners could come loose over time and have a detrimental effect on vehicle handling and control. FCA is instructing its dealers to check suspension fasteners on the 92 affected cars, sold as 2016 models, and either tighten or replace them.

And in 282 Jeep Cherokees sold as 2014, 2015 and 2016 models, seat fasteners may not have been properly tightened. At the least, these loose seat bolts could cause squeaks and rattles, and at worst, could negatively affect the seats’ structural integrity in a crash. Dealers have been instructed to replace the seats as necessary.

Now he gets to indulge his obsession playing with real cars that make their own cool noises, and gets paid for it.
