Chrysler will be contacting approximately sixty thousand 2015 Jeep Compass and Patriot owners about a manufacturing problem affecting the steering system. According to reports filed with the NHTSA, these vehicles may have been built with a power steering retention clamp that was incorrectly placed. If the hose detaches, a large volume of power steering fluid could be lost, resulting in reduced braking and a potential vehicle fire.

Dealers will inspect the return power steering hose clamp and re-position it as necessary. Owners wanting more information about the problem are asked to contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler’s number for this recall is R68 and the NHTSA campaign number is 15V-878.
