Vehicles Affected: Approximately 75,000 model-year 2015 Jeep Cherokee SUVs
The Problem: The air-conditioning lines may have been installed in close proximity to their engines’ exhaust manifolds; under certain operating conditions this could increase the risk of a fire. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said it launched an investigation after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration received two customer complaints about smoke and fire.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the air-conditioning lines and replace them, as necessary, for free. Owners who observe air-conditioning loss or any other concern, such as a dashboard warning light, should contact their dealers, the automaker said.
What Owners Should Do: FCA did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403 for more info.
