Auburn Hills, MI – August 20, 2023 – Stellantis (NYSE:STLA) which owns the Jeep brand, is recalling 44,708 SUVs due to a problem with the side airbags. This increases the potential of injury in a collision.
The following vehicles are affected by this recall:
- 2022 – 2023 Jeep Wagoneer
- 2022 – 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer
The side curtain airbags are located inside the vehicle’s B-pillar, which sits in between their first and second doors.
In the affected vehicles, the B-pillar trim is ill-fitting. This could prevent the side curtain airbag from deploying properly in the event of a crash.
An airbag that does not deploy will not be able to protect occupants in the event of a crash, upping the risk of injury.

In July 2023, the 2021-2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee was included in a Stellantis recall over an issue which could affect the vehicle’s stability, also as reported.

Owners will be notified by September 22, 2023.
