Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2014 Jeep Cherokee and Ram 1500, and 2015 Chrysler 200 vehicles.

Due to an insufficient weld, the rear shocks may detach from the vehicle at one end and possibly damage other chassis components, the tire or result in reduced braking. As a result, there is an increased chance of damage to the tire or a vehicle crash.

About 16,000 vehicles are affected by the recall.

Dealers will inspect the rear shocks and replace any affected ones, free of charge. Chrysler will notify owners, but those with questions can contact customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is P37.
