Jeep Infotainment System Supplier Target of New NHTSA Investigation
There seems to be no escaping the wrath of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which makes you wonder if the group is now just looking to shake all the heat it came under last year for dragging its feet on recalls.
There’s one huge takeaway in all the controversy surrounding the millions of Jeeps recalled for possible gas tank fires: Sergio Marchionne seems to be standing firmly behind the safety of the SUVs.
Of the 1.56 million vehicles tied to the recall of 2002-2007 Jeep Libertys and 1993-1998 Grand Cherokees, less than 10 percent of owners have responded to notifications.
Jeep has been hit with another recall in what now has become a standard mode of operation in the automobile industry. The latest one involves an occupant restraint control module that could short-circuit in the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
