DETROIT (AP) - Chrysler is recalling nearly 630,000 Jeep SUVs to fix air bag and transmission fluid leaks.
The recall includes Patriots and Compasses from the 2010 through 2012 model years to fix a software problem that could cause late deployment of side air bags and seat-belt tightening mechanisms.
The transmission problem affects Wranglers from 2012 and 2013. Chrysler says a power steering line in Wranglers with 3.6-liter V-6 engines can wear a hole in the transmission oil cooler line. That can cause the SUVs to leak fluid, damaging transmissions.
The recalls come just two days after Chrysler refused a government request to recall more than 2.7 million older-model Jeeps.
