jeepAutomobile giant Fiat Chrysler is recalling about 500,000 Jeep Wrangler SUVs because potentially faulty components in the steering wheel could prevent the air bag from deploying in a crash.

The recall is to replace clockspring assemblies and related components as well as install new steering wheel back covers and steering-column shrouds.

The company on Wednesday said 498,985 Jeep Wranglers from the 2007-2010 model years are part of the recall, including 392,464 in the United States.

Vehicles affected outside the U.S. comprise an estimated 35,412 in Canada; 8,529 in Mexico; and 62,580 outside of North America.

Separately on Wednesday, the company recalled about 80,500 Fiat 500 cars from the 2012-2016 model years, including 39,217 in the U.S.

The recall is to upgrade the clutch release systems in the cars with manual transmissions.
