We have 2 vehicles under recall S61/NHTSA 16V-668 dated 10/01/16 and still no remedy. This recall puts our lives in Jeep's hands every time we drive our cars. The other Patriot under this recall was hit by a deer while driving and the airbags did not deploy. Luckily, that time we were not injured, but what about next time?
