More Than 500,000 Jeep, Dodge SUVs Recalled Over Fire Hazard... Again
More than half a million Fiat Chrysler vehicles are being recalled over concerns that wiring in a mirror could be a fire hazard.By Grant Suneson | December 24, 2015
Fiat Chrysler is very likely to get coal in its stocking after having to issue a recall on more than half a million of its vehicles on Christmas Eve.
Roughly 570,000 vehicles from the Italian automaker pose fire risks, including 477,000 2011-2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs. A wiring problem in the passenger-side vanity mirror could be a fire hazard in those cars. (Video via Dodge)
If that sounds familiar, it’s because Fiat Chrysler issued a nearly identical recall in July 2014. This latest recall is being done because some of the fixes to those mirrors didn’t actually solve the problem.
