Jeep Cherokee Recalls: Is Yours on the List?

Jeep Cherokee Recalls: Is Yours on the List?

Jul 16, 2018



The Jeep Cherokee was introduced way back in the 1984 model year as a unibody off-roader but the nameplate actually dates 10 years prior as a two-door version of the body-on-frame Wagoneer. After a 12-year absence from the American market, the Cherokee name returned for 2014 and enjoys high demand.

Thanks to the trove of data available on NHTSA’s website, we have compiled a list of recalls for this model. Data from the organization is available for all model years of the Jeep Cherokee. Here is all the available information on Jeep Cherokee recalls, taken from the NHTSA website.

Recall Alert : 2015/2017 RAM Trucks

Statement: Power Lock Actuator Control Assembly


August 2, 2018 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 1.1 million U.S.-market pickup trucks to upgrade their tailgate locking mechanisms.

An investigation by FCA US has discovered the power locking mechanisms in the tailgates of certain pickups share a small internal component that may break over time. If this were to happen, the vehicle’s tailgate may unlatch.

FCA US is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

The recall affects certain Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups from model years 2015 through 2017. Trucks equipped with manual tailgate locks are excluded from the campaign, as are those with eight-foot cargo beds.

The redesigned-for-2019 Ram 1500 also is unaffected. Its tailgate mechanism benefits from a new design that delivers enhanced functionality, such as lift-assist.

Customers will be notified when service becomes available. In the interim, FCA US reminds that all loose cargo should be secured while driving, as stated in the operating manuals of the affected vehicles.

Further, FCA US pickups offer alternate features to accommodate load security, such as tie-down rings, cleats, high-friction bed-liners, bulkhead dividers, and bed-extenders.

FCA US urges all customers to heed recall notices. Those who have questions may call the FCA US Customer Care Center at 1-800-853-1403.

Additional vehicles will be subject to recall in Canada (est. 260,315), Mexico (est. 19,432) and certain markets outside the NAFTA region (est. 25,361).

Recall Alert : 2018/19

Statement: Brake Performance


August 23, 2018 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 154,337 vehicles in the U.S., about one-third of which are in dealer hands, to inspect and bleed their brake systems, as needed.

An investigation by FCA US discovered certain shipments of a supplied brake-system component had not been manufactured to specification and were inadvertently installed on vehicles during spring 2018.

In new vehicles with very low mileage, these components may cause gas bubbles to form in a vehicle’s brake fluid. Brake function would remain in such circumstances, but stopping distances may be increased.

FCA US is unaware of any related injuries or accidents, and the Company’s investigation revealed no customer complaints. However, FCA US urges affected customers to heed the instructions on their recall notices.

The recall affects certain 2018 Dodge Journey CUVs, 2018-2019 Dodge Grand Caravan minivans, 2018-2019 Jeep Compass SUVs and 2019 Jeep Cherokee SUVs.

Customer notification is imminent, however, dealers have been advised which vehicles are affected and are providing service accordingly. Customers with questions or concerns may contact their dealers or call the FCA US Customer Care Center at 1-800-853-1403.

Additional vehicles will be subject to recall in Canada (est. 19,066), Mexico (est. 900) and certain markets outside the NAFTA region (est. 35,562).

Recall Alert : 2017-2018 Alfa Romeo

2017-2018 Alfa Romeo

Statement: Software
September 28, 2018 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -


FCA US LLC is voluntarily recalling an estimated 34,359 vehicles in the U.S. to update their engine-control software. Of this number, less than one percent may also need new catalytic converters. Service technicians will make the required determination using digital diagnostic equipment.

All required repairs will be performed free of charge.

An investigation by FCA US discovered a specific engine operating condition that occurs naturally, but only rarely, and is imperceptible to the driver, may go unmitigated by existing engine-control software. If this were to happen, a vehicle’s catalytic converter may overheat, possibly leading to engine stall or, in unique circumstances, fire.

FCA US is aware of two potentially related engine-compartment fires. However, the Company is unaware of any related injuries or accidents.

An instrument-panel warning may illuminate if this defect manifests itself. Alternately, the vehicle may experience temporary engine-power loss, while in extreme cases, occupants may observe a burning odor.

Customers who observe any such events should contact their dealers.

The recall is limited to certain 2017-2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia sedans and 2018 Stelvio SUVs. High-performance Quadrifoglio models are unaffected.

Service is available and affected customers will be advised as early as next week to schedule appointments. In the interim, customers with questions or concerns should contact their dealers, or Alfa Romeo Premium Care at 866-932-3881.

The new software will enhance an engine’s capacity to detect and mitigate the operating condition associated with catalyst overheating.

Additional vehicles will be subject to recall in Canada (est. 2,619) and Mexico (est. 90). Affected customers will be advised when they may schedule service.

2018-2019 Jeep Wrangler JL facing recall over frame weld separations

2018-2019 Jeep Wrangler JL facing recall over frame weld separations

Steering response might diminish or disappear entirely. It's a big deal.

October 5, 2018

When a part is welded to a vehicle's frame, it's reasonably expected that said part will remain welded to that vehicle. But when it doesn't, as is the case with certain Jeep Wranglers, it's time for a recall.

Fiat Chrysler is set to issue a voluntary recall for an unspecified number of 2018-2019 Jeep Wrangler JL SUVs. Since many of these vehicles remain on dealership lots, the automaker has issued a stop-sale for affected vehicles still in dealer possession, according to documents posted to the JL Wrangler Forum. These vehicles cannot be sold or delivered until the recall work is completed. A spokesman for Fiat Chrysler confirmed the forthcoming recall, that the number of affected vehicles is "not big" and that no accidents or injuries have been linked to the problem so far.

The issue stems from a part welded to the vehicle's frame. Evidently, some of the recalled Wranglers might have been constructed with an improper weld connecting the front track bar to the frame, which in certain situations could cause the track bar to separate from the frame. If that happens, the vehicle might suffer from diminished (or no) steering response, which greatly increases the risk of an accident. The track bar, sometimes referred to as the Panhard rod, is a rigid bar that connects the vehicle's axle to its frame, preventing unwanted lateral movement of the axle.

At the moment, it is unclear how Jeep plans to remedy the issue. According to Jalopnik, which contacted several owners who reported track-bar issues, at least one owner is in the process of having his vehicle replaced. Whether Fiat Chrysler will attempt to repair some of the affected vehicles, or replace them all entirely, has yet to be confirmed. There's precedence for outright replacement -- after recalling 293 examples of its Ascent SUV for missing B-pillar welds, Subaru offered full replacements for all affected vehicles.

Affected owners will receive notifications via first-class mail. At least some dealerships have already received FCA's recall notice, according to Jalopnik, which was posted to the JL Wrangler Forum earlier on Friday. That notice says that the recall should begin in the fourth quarter of 2018.
