Vehicles Affected: Approximately 30,000 model-year 2016 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs manufactured between Feb. 10 and April 28, 2016, and equipped with a 3.6-liter engine built at the Saltillo Engine Plant in Mexico
The Problem: During engine assembly, the fuel rail crossover tube may have been damaged and, over time, may result in a fuel leak, which in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire. Dodge and Jeep manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said in a statement that it is unaware of any related injuries, accidents, customer complaints or warranty claims related to this issue.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the engine assembly for damage to the fuel rail crossover tube and replace it, as necessary, for free.
What Owners Should Do: FCA will begin notifying owners on Dec. 19. Owners can call the automaker at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
