Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV Sucked Into FCA’s Mess

By  | 

We know that Honda will be recalling their Accord over after a few vehicles caught fire but it looks like they are not the only one catching fire as FCA also announced a new recall to fix a fire risk.

FCA issued two separate recall. The first recall will affect 565,000 units of FCA vehicles including the 2011-2014 Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger, Dodge Durano SUVs, as well as the 2012 to 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs.

According to FCA, the hot temperature might lead to premature diode wear which would lead to a burning odour or smoke. If that happens, the anti-lock braking system or the engine might stop working.

The other recall will affect the Dodge Journey and Fiat Freemont. The recall will affect 770,000 units of vehicles. FCA reported that the problematic wiring could cause the vehicle to short circuit leading to the deployment of the air bags. The short circuit could also affect the wipers and some of the controls as well.
