FCA Recalls Nearly 83,000 Jeep Cherokees over Transmission Issue

The FCA Group (Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles) has just issued a recall of close to 83,000 Jeep Cherokee models equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine, this after identifying a problem with the transmission by which the engine could shift into neutral without warning.

FCA spokesperson Eric Mayne told Automotive News that the campaign was aimed at 2014 model-yer Jeep Cherokee SUVs. That edition marked the model’s first on its much-publicized return to the market.

According to Jeep, the problem came to light thanks to customer feedback, which led the company to look into a possible issue with the Cherokee’s transmission. Its investigation confirmed that one of the components that manages the fluidity of the transmission liquid was prone to malfunctioning. In that case, the transmission could slip into neutral, obviously increasing the risk of an accident.

The recall affects 10,485 Cherokee models in Canada, 287 in Mexico and 6,758 outside of North America.
