Chrysler To Recall Nearly 435,000 SUVs

Posted: Updated:

Chrysler is recalling nearly 435,000 Jeep SUVs to fix air bag and transmission fluid leaks.

The automaker will recall more than 254,000 Patriots and Compasses from 2010 through 2012 in the U.S. to fix an air bag problem. It's also is recalling more than 180,000 Jeep Wranglers from 2012 and 2013 for transmission fluid leaks.

In the Patriots and Compasses, a software error could cause late deployment of the side air bags and seat-belt tightening mechanisms. For Wranglers with 3.6-liter V-6 engines, Chrysler says a power steering line can wear a hole in the transmission oil cooler line. The SUVs can leak fluid, damaging transmissions. Both recalls start in July.

The recalls come just two days after Chrysler refused a government request to recall more than 2.7 million older-model Jeeps.
