Vehicles Affected: Approximately 6,000 model-year 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs manufactured between June 12 and June 20, 2015. The majority of the affected vehicles are in dealer inventory; FCA reports that only 65 have been sold to consumers.
The Problem: The vehicles may have been inadvertently equipped with improperly heat-treated suspension components; this condition could lead to component breakage, rear-end instability or reduced braking power. FCA is advising owners to stop driving affected vehicles.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect and make any necessary repairs for free.
What Owners Should Do: FCA has been contacting by telephone the owners of the 65 vehicles already sold; if an inspection determines a vehicle is equipped with a suspect component, the vehicle will be transported to a dealership for service. The rest of the affected vehicles — the precise locations of which are known — will be inspected and serviced before being delivered or sold. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403 for more information.
