86K Jeep Cherokees Recalled Over Engine Stalling Fears
Things To Know About The Jeep Cherokee Recall
86,503 vehicles are involved in this consumer alert, which is a substantial number. That means these cars can be on the roads just about anywhere, including right here in Florida. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles recently announced the recall for 2019 Jeep Cherokee SUVs. The units in question come equipped with 2.4-liter engines.
These autos have a transmission software problem that may cause them to stall when slowing down. While this might not sound like a huge deal, it increases the driver's risks of being involved in an accident. Should the car stall while stopping at a red light, or in traffic on the highway, it could get rear-ended. If the problem happens in an intersection, the vehicle can get T-boned.
No injuries have been reported to the company as of yet. However, that does not mean they are not possible. The organization is expected to notify owners of the issue directly, and dealers are going to update the software for free. Still, those with questions or concerns before that should feel free to contact the FCA customer service department at 1-800-853-1403.
Products Are Supposed To Be Safe When They Hit The Open Market
Manufacturer liability is a legal concept that holds manufacturers or sellers responsible for defective products. If an individual sustains injuries while using the item, in this case, an SUV, he or she may be entitled to compensation for the wounds. However, these large organizations have legal teams standing by to discredit such claims. They even go as far as to shift blame onto the consumer.
The lawyers have their client's best interests in mind, not yours. They do this and that to prevent the manufacturer from paying out a large settlement. Car crashes can leave a victim with lost wages and injuries such as...
• Broken And Fractured Bones
• Compressed, Ruptured, And Herniated Spinal Discs
• Traumatic Brain Injuries
• Organ Damage
• Burns And Lacerations
