A world-wide recall of at least a total of 630,000 Chrysler SUVs will begin in July according to reports from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The decision was made just a couple of days after the giant automaker refused the request of the government to recall 2.7 million later-model Jeeps.
The recall was triggered by airbag and seat belt defects on 409,000 Jeep Patriot and Compass models and transmission flaws on 221,000 Jeep Wranglers.
On Thursday, Eric Mayne, a Chrysler official, said no accidents were reported prior to the recall. Officials also said the recall will affect the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
