Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs. In the affected vehicles, the rear tow hook bracket or tow eye bracket may be loose.

If the tow bracket is loose, the bracket may detach from the vehicle while it is being driven, possibly becoming a road hazard.

If the bracket detaches during a vehicle recovery, there may be a loss of control of the towed vehicle. Either scenario increases the risk of a crash.

Chrysler will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and local dealers will confirm that both tow hook bracket bolts are properly tightened, free of charge.

This recall is expected to begin on November 6, 2016.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403.

Chrysler's reference number for this recall is S73.
