 (CNN) - Automaker Chrysler has recalled more than 700,000 Jeeps Tuesday for an ignition switch problem.

The recall affects Jeep Commanders from model years 2006 to 2007 and Jeep Grand Cherokees from 2005 to 2007. 

The company says the problem can cause the ignition key to move out of the on position, usually by a driver's knee while the car is being driven. That could cause the engine to stall and the airbags to stop working.

Chrysler says it will contact affected customers by mid-September.
