What is the Latest Chrysler Recall?
We expect the products we buy and consume to be safe for our use and consumption. Unfortunately, sometimes products pose potential risks to our health or safety. When this happens, it is common for the company to issue a recall to help warn consumers of the potential hazards associated with the product. One product that is often the subject of recalls is automobiles. Recently, Fiat Chrysler has issued a recall for some of its vehicles.
Fiat Chrysler has issued a recall for almost 700,000 of its SUVs across the world. The recall comes after the discovery that the engines in the recalled vehicles can stall. The silicon deposits on the contact points of the fuel pump relays can cut off the electrical current. If the electrical current is cut off, it can cause the engine to stall or fail to start. If this happens, it can increase the risk of being involved in an accident.
The majority of the vehicles that are included in the recall are located in North America. The vehicles impacted by the recall include certain Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durangos with model years 2011 through 2013. Some of the vehicles that would be included in the recall had the relays replaced in a previous recall.
The company has stated that it is not aware of any automobile accidents or injuries resulting from problems associated with the recall. The company is currently in the process of finalizing plans to repair the recalled vehicles. Fiat Chrysler will send out notifications to owners of the recalled vehicles to inform them when it is time to bring their vehicles to dealerships to have them repaired.
