Australian recall roundup: Jeep Grand Cherokee for rear blinkers issue image

The North American based automaker Jeep has recently announced a recall for several Grand Cherokee vehicles, because of a potential fault with the rear blinkers.

The new generation of the Jeep Grand Cherokee has had its fair share of recalls since it was introduced and the newest one has been recently announced in Australia. According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), the Jeep Grand Cherokee is facing a possible fault in its rear blinkers. The ACCC says that the problem is found in its software and it may “pose as an accident hazard” if ignored.

If the blinkers are not working correctly, a turn-signal failure can lead to a severe crash, putting the lives of the driver, passengers and other road users on a balance. The affected Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles are from the 2014 model year and no less than 11,631 units will have to be taken by their owners back to the dealers. Owners of these SUVs will be notified by the company about the problem and the software fix will be performed by the dealerships free of charge. The new-gen Jeep Grand Cherokee has been recalled in Australia 9 separate times, including this new one.
