Jeep Grand Cherokee owners who plan on towing a caravan or a boat this weekend should reconsider their Easter travel plans.
The American brand issued a recall notice in regards to Grand Cherokee models fitted with an official tow bar kit that were sold after May 31, 2017.
An estimated 2350 vehicles are affected by the recall which may see washers and bolts lose torque during towing which in turn can loosen the tow bar itself causing the towed item to detach.
The American marque is urging owners not use the tow bar until a fix can be implemented.
Affected owners will receive a notification by mail if their vehicle is caught up in the recall. They will then receive a second notification alerting them when parts are available. All repairs will be undertaken free of charge.
If customers immediate plans for an Easter Holiday are affected, contact Jeep immediately as a spokesperson for the brand indicated it will proactively make arrangements to limit any disruptions.
Jeep is so far unaware of any injuries or accidents caused by the potentially faulty part.
