Fiat Chrysler recalling 570,000 SUVs for fire risks in two campaigns
In an announcement made on Thursday, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV said that it is issuing a recall of 570,000 SUVs because of potential fire risks.
According to the announcement, Fiat Chrysler will recall 570,000 SUVs in two separate campaigns. One of the recalls pertains to 477,000 2011-2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs; while the other recall involves 93,000 2015 Jeep Compass and Patriot SUVs.
Going by the details shared by Fiat Chrysler, nearly 413,000 SUVs are being recalled in the US; 32,000 in Canada; 16,000 in Mexico; and 108,000 outside North America.
Announcing the recalls, Fiat Chrysler said that fire risks in the recalled SUVs result from two problems --- faulty wiring of the vanity mirror of the recalled Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs; and an out-of-position low-pressure hose of the Jeep Compass and Patriot SUVs.
The SUV recalls by Fiat Chrysler come at a time when US regulators are scrutinizing the company’s safety efforts. In an earlier-this-month statement, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration had said that the automaker had, since 2003, not reported any crash deaths or injuries because of problems in its electronic system for monitoring and reporting safety data, and not because the company was intentionally withholding information.
