Vehicles Affected: Approximately 49,000 model-year 2018 Jeep Cherokee SUVs equipped with 2.4-liter engines
The Problem: A batch of fuel-supply tubes may have connectors that were incorrectly fitted, which in the event of a leak, increase the risk of a fire.
Jeep manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said it is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the fuel-supply line, as needed, for free.
What Owners Should Do: FCA will begin notifying owners this week. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit NHTSA's website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
