The recalls have been raining down on us left and right as the FDA and other regulation departments are doing their best to keep us safe. We see recalls on food items, clothing, household items, toys, and even vehicles as they were either improperly manufactured or posed some kind of safety hazard. The idea of recalls is not to call out businesses but instead to inform the general public and keep them safe.

I have said this time and time again but I will say it once more, vehicle recalls are one of the scariest if not the scariest recalls that exist. It's already scary enough that we are operating a 2,000+ pound vehicle at high speeds but now you're telling me there may be something functionally wrong with my machine? Although this is the case, it is meant to let you know so that you can get the issue taken care of without hurting yourself or your wallet. Stellantis is in the headlines again as they are recalling over 1 million of their vehicles due to a software glitch that could cause injury.

Stellantis, which was formerly Fiat Chrysler, was made aware of radio software that can glitch out, causing the backup camera to be inoperable.

The following brands, makes, and models below are the affected vehicles:

  • Jeep Compass 2022 and 2023 model years

They have already started to fix and address the issue in several of the vehicles, as they are working at a fast pace to keep all their customers safe. Stellantis has sent out an online software update that more than 735,000 vehicles have already received. Owners should see a request to accept the update on their media screens.
