Vehicles Affected: Approximately 80 model-year 2016 Jeep Cherokee SUVs manufactured between Oct. 3, 2015, and March 22, 2016
The Problem: There is a possibility that the right half-shaft may have been incorrectly manufactured, causing it to fracture without warning. A fractured half-shaft may disconnect from the drive axle, increasing the risk of a crash. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this problem.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the right half-shaft for free.
What Owners Should Do: The automaker has not yet announced an owner notification schedule. Owners can call FCA at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
