Jeep Puts Hold on Shipping Some Renegades
It appears FCA has put a hold on shipping some of the subcompact Jeeps, in order to fix a software issue.
On the heels of a February recall on 228,181 Cherokees, Jeep has announced another recall on roughly 62,148 Cherokees from the 2014 and 2015 model years for the same problem.
A jury in Decatur, Georgia found that Chrysler “acted with wanton disregard for human life in the design … of the 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee.”
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.
