Dodge, Chrysler & Jeep Vehicles Linked to Recall Over Injury Risks
Several safety advocates are reporting on the latest Chrysler recall campaign.
According to the official announcement launched by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Chrysler has recalled all units of the 2012 through 2014 Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 vehicles as well as the 2014 and 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Since these vehicles come with software that may present issues, the driver may not be alerted that he or she has exited the vehicle while the gear hasn’t been shifted to the ‘PARK’ position, and while the vehicle’s engine is still running.
Since the vehicle may end up rolling away if the driver allows it to be left unattended without shifting the gear to ‘Park,’ bystanders, the driver, and even other vehicles may be hit if the vehicle rolls away unexpectedly, making this recall campaign important.
Consumers who own any of the recalled vehicles should be contacted soon. Once you’re contacted, make sure to schedule a visit to a local dealer where you may have your vehicle’s software updated entirely for free.
