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

In other words, recovering can prove to be quite costly, notably if the person doesn't have health insurance or a steady paycheck. Don't allow the business to walk all over you, simply because they have the funds to do so. Instead, contact our office and put a reputable attorney in your corner. The team will build the strongest possible case and fight for the settlement that you deserve.


Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
