Three tiny Mopar recalls for two problems; elsewhere, three H-K recalls, some bad airbags, and loose nuts

Stellantis issued three recalls for two problems last week; 24V289 and 24V291 both covered Jeep Grand Cherokees (2022-24 for the former and 2023 for the latter), because the rear view camera image may not display. The first recall covers just 8 vehicles whose coax cable might be loose; dealers merely have to secure it. The recalls cover five 2022-23 Grand Cherokees and three 2023-24 Grand Cherokee Ls. The second recall covers a mere two 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokees, one two-row vehicle and one three-row vehicle,  because the screen module connection may be loose. The cure is the same—the dealer will tighten it.

2023 Ram ProMaster

The second recall is perhaps more serious, affecting the 2021 Ram ProMaster; the stability control might stop working. On the other hand, it is not exactly a Ford Pinto situation: just two vehicles are affected, and the solution is to tighten the ground nut assembly. Amusingly, these, yes, two vehicles were made from August 14, 2021 to October 18, 2021.

So much for the comedy portion of our recall show. Jaguar recalled the 2021-23 e-Pace because the passenger airbags might tear, which can presumably cause chemical burns or prevent full cushioning. Tesla is recalling the 2024 Model 3 because the driver’s airbag might not deploy properly, too. Finally, BMW recalled a huge array of 2014-15 cars—the 2, 3, and 4 series, essentially—because airbag inflators can rupture. Thus ends the airbag portion of our recall show.

Genesis has fuel pump failures which can cause stalling in 2022-23 G and GV 70 and 80 models. Hyundai did not properly tighten differential bolts on the 2024 Ioniq 6. Kia had loss of power steering assistance on the 2024 Sorento. That’s one recall for each of that company’s brands.
