Check To Protect

NADA Partners With National Safety Council on Vehicle Recall Campaign

NADA chairman and FCA US LLC dealer Wes Lutz leads efforts to link dealership websites to Check To Protect
Check To Protect gives vehicle owners the ability to find out whether there is an open recall on their car or truck


March 27, 2018 , Las Vegas -

The National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) joined with the National Safety Council (NSC) in support of its Check To Protect campaign designed to educate the public about the importance of addressing open vehicle recalls.

NADA chairman and FCA US LLC dealer Wes Lutz made the announcement last week at the NADA conference and convention in Las Vegas. He also intends to promote Check To Protect on his dealership websites and during interactions with customers. Lutz encouraged fellow auto dealers to follow his lead by using and promoting CheckToProtect.org as the go-to resource for drivers to learn whether a vehicle has an open recall.

“NADA wholeheartedly supports the National Safety Council's Check To Protect initiative, and is proud to be a partner in its efforts to educate and raise awareness about the importance of getting recall repairs completed,” said Lutz, owner of Extreme Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep-Ram dealership located in Jackson, Michigan. "I’m honored to be the first dealer to link directly to the Check To Protect website from my dealership home page, and I’m encouraging all franchised dealers, of every brand, to do so as well.”

The Council said it is grateful for NADA’s support and encourages vehicle owners to go to CheckToProtect.org to review their recall status. Those with an open recall are encouraged to make an appointment with their certified auto dealer today. All recalls are 100 percent free for drivers to have repaired at authorized dealerships regardless of the age of the vehicle.

“For Check To Protect to work on a national level, the National Safety Council knows it needs dealer support,” said Kelly Nantel, vice president of communications and advocacy for the Council. “At the end of the day, dealers are the ones who repair the open recalls and close the loop. This relationship raises awareness about the Check To Protect campaign among dealers, drivers and their communities – all places we want to spread the word.”

The Council launched Check To Protect in June 2017. Since that time, more than 100,000 people have visited CheckToProtect.org to learn whether their vehicle has an open recall. FCA US is a founding partner of Check To Protect.

“Recall awareness and compliance are critically important to road safety,” said Kristen Kreibich, Safety Advocacy, FCA US Vehicle Safety and Regulatory Compliance. “FCA US is proud to be working with NSC to develop Check To Protect.”

About NADA
The NADA story began in 1917 when 30 auto dealers traveled to the nation’s capital to convince Congress not to impose a luxury tax on the automobile. They successfully argued that the automobile is a necessity of American life, not a luxury. From that experience, NADA was born. Today, NADA represents nearly 16,500 new car and truck dealerships, with both domestic and international franchises.

About the National Safety Council

Founded in 1913 and chartered by Congress, the National Safety Council is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to save lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities, and on the road through leadership, research, education and advocacy. NSC advances this mission by partnering with businesses, government agencies, elected officials and the public in areas where we can make the most impact – distracted driving, teen driving, workplace safety, prescription drug overdoses and Safe Communities. Safety+Health magazine, the Council’s flagship publication, is a leading source of occupational safety and health information.

2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Involved in Two Separate Recalls

Apr 12, 2018



Alfa Romeo Stelvio owners are having to make a lot of trips back to the dealership.

The Italian automaker has announced two more recalls for the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio, bringing the grand total to four in as many months. The first recall affects 12,595 units and Alfa Romeo says water can possibly leak into the body control modules and corrode the modules and connectors. If this does occur, the driver may notice a variety of symptoms, including illuminated warning lights, non-functioning windshield wipers, turn signals activating for no reason, a failing horn, and a complete loss of interior lighting.

An internal investigation was first opened in September 2017 by FCA, after the company learned of a warranty claim concerning corrosion on the front wiring harness connector. Another investigation was opened after the automaker found how many electrical functions can fail, along with engineers that water can intrude through the sheetmetal sealant at the A-pillar.

To resolve the issue, dealerships will install additional sealing protection to prevent water from entering the body control modules and connectors. The recall is expected to begin May 18, 2018.

The second recall also affects 12,595 units with corrosion problems, which can cause the liftgates to unintentionally open while driving under 3 mph. An investigation was opened in January after the automaker received a warranty claim with the problem on the tailgate of a 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio. Engineers used hand-held tools and discovered water could leak through faulty seals in the rear liftgate panels. In addition, water also leaked through sealing at the rear tail lights and corroded the wiring harnesses, connectors, and switches.

To resolve the second issue, dealers will install additional protection to prevent water from leaking into the components and wiring. That recall is also expected to begin on May 18.

Older Jeeps recalled; suspension problem could cause crash

May 10, 2018


DETROIT (AP) — Fiat Chrysler is recalling more than 325,000 older Jeep SUVs in North America to fix a suspension problem that could limit a driver's control of the vehicles.

Statement: Software Upgrade


May 25, 2018 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is recalling an estimated 4.8 million U.S.-market vehicles to upgrade software in their Powertrain Control Modules. The upgrade addresses an unlikely sequence of events that would compromise cruise-control functionality.

In response to driving conditions such as varying road grades, cruise-control systems automatically initiate acceleration, as needed, to help vehicles maintain driver-selected speeds.

In certain vehicles, if such an acceleration were to occur simultaneously with a short-circuit in a specific electrical network, a driver could be unable to cancel cruise-control. However, if this sequence of events were to occur, cruise-control acceleration can be overpowered by the vehicle’s brakes.

The vehicle may also be stopped by shifting it into neutral and braking accordingly. Regardless of the mitigation strategy, the vehicle may be placed in park once it has stopped, at which point cruise-control is cancelled.

FCA US is unaware of any related injuries or accidents involving the affected vehicles, which span six model-years and account for more than 200 billion travel miles.


“Notwithstanding the extraordinary circumstances that must exist before a customer would experience a problem, we are taking this action because we are fully committed to vehicle safety,” says Mark Chernoby, Chief Technical Compliance Officer and Head of Vehicle Safety & Regulatory Compliance – NAFTA.

“We have a remedy and a widespread network of engaged dealers who are preparing to deliver service,” Chernoby adds. “We urge customers to follow the instructions on their recall notices.”

The remedy will be provided free of charge. FCA US will begin alerting affected customers as early as next week so they may schedule service appointments.

The Company advises affected customers to avoid using cruise control until their vehicles are equipped with the upgraded software. The recall, which is limited to vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions and gasoline-powered engines, involves:


2015-17 Chrysler 200 sedan
2014-18 Chrysler 300 sedan
2017-18 Chrysler Pacifica minivan
2015-18 Dodge Challenger coupe
2014-18 Dodge Charger sedan
2014-18 Dodge Journey CUV
2014-18 Dodge Durango SUV

FCA Issues Massive Recall for Cruise Control Issue
May 25, 2018




FCA is recalling 4.8 million vehicles in the U.S. that could get stuck in cruise control.

Although FCA says the sequence of events that could cause a car to get stuck in cruise control is unlikely, it will update the necessary software as a precaution. FCA is unaware of any injuries or collisions with the affected vehicles involved. Still, FCA is advising the affected customers to refrain from using cruise control until the software is updated.

FCA explains the issue in a recall bulletin: “In response to driving conditions such as varying road grades, cruise control systems automatically initiate acceleration, as needed, to help vehicles maintain driver-selected speeds.

In certain vehicles, if such an acceleration were to occur simultaneously with a short-circuit in a specific electrical network, a driver could be unable to cancel cruise-control. However, if this sequence of events were to occur, cruise-control acceleration can be overpowered by the vehicle’s brakes.

The vehicle may also be stopped by shifting it into neutral and braking accordingly. Regardless of the mitigation strategy, the vehicle may be placed in park once it has stopped, at which point cruise-control is canceled.”

FCA is contacting customers as early as next week to schedule service appointments. but drivers with questions can call FCA US Recall Information Center at 866-220-6747.

The affected vehicles are all equipped with automatic transmissions and gas-powered engines and include:

-2015-17 Chrysler 200 sedan

-2014-18 Chrysler 300 sedan

-2017-18 Chrysler Pacifica minivan
