Chrysler Recalls Over 200,000 SUVs
Posted on behalf of Harbin & Burnett on Sep 23, 2014 in Auto Accidents
Chrysler has announced that it is recalling more than 200,000 Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees sold in multiple countries, including the United States, Mexico and Canada.
Both the Dodge Durango and the Jeep Grand Cherokee have been routinely identified as unsafe. Consumers consistently requested repairs because the SUVs would stall or at times fail to start.
Chrysler has identified a faulty fuel pump that causes the engines to stall or experience difficulty starting. Only one model year is affected in the recall. Chrysler Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees from 2011 are the only SUVs that were recalled for faulty fuel pumps.
Chrysler identified the defect because of a pattern identified in the repairs often requested and completed on the SUVs. It became clear that the fuel pump issue was a wider safety defect in all Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durangos sold in 2011.
Customers cannot currently schedule their SUVs for service. Chrysler has said that consumers who have been impacted will receive notice when dealerships are ready to service the recalled vehicles.
