Chrysler is recalling more than 1,800 model year 2014-2016 Jeep Cherokee vehicles. The seat fasteners on the first or second row seats may not have been tightened to the proper torque specification.

Loose fasteners may allow the seats to move, increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupants in the event of a crash.

The recall is expected to begin on September 23, 2016.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the seats or seat sets, free of charge.
