Jeep Grand Cherokee Recall
Fiat Chrysler recalled over 1 million vehicles in April of 2016 due to a confusing transmission issue. According to the official recall, many drivers couldn’t tell whether their car’s automatic transmission was in the “Park,” “Drive” or “Reverse.”
As a result, the vehicle can move unexpectedly
The problem has caused dozens of injuries and it was suspected to play a role in the death of actor Anton Yelchin, known for his work in the rebooted Star Trek films.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the voluntary recall impacted 2014 and 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokees that were manufactured between July of 2012 and December of 2015. The recall also affected the following models:
- Dodge Charger (2012, 2013, 2104)
- Chrysler 300 Sedan (2014, 2015)
- Jeep Grand Cherokee (2014, 2015)
