Fiat Chrysler recall a million vehicles

Fiat Chrysler Recall
27 April 2016

The world of motoring is having a nightmare at the moment, given the mess surrounding the Volkswagen and Mitsubishi emissions scandals. Toyota have also been having a difficult time too, with loads of recalls for various reasons.

Now, it is the turn of Fiat Chrysler, who have had to recall over 1.1 million cars and SUVs worldwide, because they're rolling away after drivers have left their vehicles alone.

The vehicle maker said that there are as many as 41 injuries linked to this recall, after drivers had assumed that their vehicles would be fine when they were left in park mode.

The recall includes the 2012-2014 Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 sedans and 2014-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee sport utility vehicles.

At the moment, this affects around 811,000 vehicles in America, 52,000 in Canada, around 17,000 in Mexico, and roughly 250,000 vehicles outside North America.

Fiat Chrysler will fix the vehicles, but they've not said how they're doing it just yet.

You can have a look to see if your car is included in the recall here. You can assume that, if this makes it to the UK, you'll be contacted in due course, and what happens next for you.
