MEXICO CITY — Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has issued a recall for more than 122,000 vehicles in Mexico, citing possible problems with electronics, while VW is recalling some Golf models over possible head rest issues, Mexico’s consumer watchdog Profeco said.

Profeco said in a statement the Fiat Chrysler recall is due to a possible computer programming problem with the vehicles’ powertrain control module and applies to 122,208 vehicles sold in Mexico under Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram brands.

In the same statement, Profeco said that VW had also issued a recall notice for a small number of 2018 Golf R vehicles already in circulation, citing a possible problem with seat head rests.

Both companies said they will provide free inspections of the affected vehicles.
