Statement: Air-conditioning System

October 27, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 75,364 U.S.-market SUVs to inspect and replace, as required, their air-conditioning lines, as required.

FCA US launched an investigation after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration received two customer complaints involving smoke and fire. The Company discovered air-conditioning lines on some vehicles may have been installed in close proximity to their engines’ exhaust manifolds; under certain operating conditions, this may pose a fire risk.

FCA US is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

The recall is limited to certain 2015 Jeep Cherokees. Additional vehicles are affected in other markets. They include an estimated 7,571 in Canada; 4,018 in Mexico; and 6,942 outside the outside the NAFTA region.

Affected customers will be advised when they may schedule service, which FCA US will provide free of charge.
.
Customers who observe air-conditioning loss or any other concern, such as a dashboard warning light, should contact their dealers. Customers with additional questions may call the FCA US Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.
