Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) has issued a recall of over 224,000 Jeep Wrangler SUVs.

The cars included in the recall may not deploy an airbag upon impact, the Associated Press reports. Fiat Chrysler discovered that wiring in the vehicle may come loose during a crash, which would keep the airbags from inflating and prevent the seat belt pretensioners, which tighten the seat belt, from working as well.

The global recall affects 2016 and 2017 models, though none of the latter have been sold yet. While the company is not prepared to repair the problem at this point in time, Fiat Chrysler will soon contact the car owners to let them know when they can schedule an appointment at their car dealership. Repairs will be free of charge.

The issue with the airbags came to light during company crash tests. Luckily, it appears as if no customers have been affected considering no car owners have reported any related injuries or crashes.

A spokesperson for Fiat Chrysler stressed to Fortune that this wiring disconnect would only occur in a very specific type of impact, and at this point in time the company has not received any customer complaints.
