The 2021 Cherokee has been recalled because its front lower control arms can fracture. The problem is dangerous enough that Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) is advising owners not to drive until the vehicles can be inspected. That's an ominous start for the latest iteration of the popular SUV.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the front lower control arms and replace them as necessary, free of charge. The recall began November 6, 2020.

The issue affects roughly 700 vehicles and is limited to the Cherokee Latitude and Limited.
