Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has announced a recall covering the Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee because of an issue with the fuel pumps.
Certain Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles are the subject to a new recall announced recently by FCA. According to the car company, the two models have a problem with their fuel pump function which might prevent them from starting or which can lead to an engine stall.
“FCA US engineers have determined a condition identified in a previous investigation may extend to additional vehicles. The previous investigation, which led to a recall, traced a pattern of repairs to fuel-pump relays that are susceptible to deformation. This may affect fuel-pump function, preventing a vehicle from starting, or leading to engine stall”, says the company in its official press release.
The affected vehicles are the 2012 and 2013 Dodge Durango full-size SUVs and the non-NAFTA 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, equipped with the 3.0 liter diesel engines. The total number of affected units stands at 467,480, with 338,216 vehicles in the United States, 18,991 units in Canada, 10,829 units in Mexico and 99,444 vehicles outside the NAFTA region. FCA US is currently unaware of any injuries or accidents related to this condition. The recall should begin soon and the necessary repairs / replacements will be performed at no cost to the owners.
