Chrysler recalls 470,000 Jeep SUVs

  • Chrysler has announced the recall of about 470,000 Jeep SUVs from across the world. These include Grand Cherokees produced from 2005 to 2010 and Commanders produced from 2006 to 2010. It is believed that cracks in the circuit board in many of these vehicles are likely to cause faulty warnings on start up. The vehicles are likely to shift to neutral and roll away without any indication.

    According to Chrysler, about 26 crashes and two injuries have been hitherto reported to the company. About 141,000 of the Jeep SUVs recalled are outside North America. 295,000 of the vehicles are in the US, 28,500 in Canada, and about 4,200 in Mexico. The repairs will be done without any cost to owners, said the company.
