FCA US LLC is willingly recalling an estimated 4,822 vehicles in a U.S. to reinstate their driver-side building mat.
A patron censure led to an FCA US review that detected these building mats might inadvertently trap a accelerator pedal in certain vehicles.
The Company is unknowingly of any associated injuries or accidents. Further, all FCA US vehicles are versed with brake-throttle override, a reserve underline that cancels a postulated accelerator-pedal submit when it detects coexisting brake-pedal and accelerator-pedal application.
The remember affects certain 2018 Jeep® Grand Cherokee SRT and Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk SUVs. Approximately one-third of these vehicles are in play hands.
Customers will be suggested when they might obtain replacements from dealers. In a interim, FCA US advises owners of these vehicles to mislay their driver-side building mat.
Dealers are now stealing a driver-side building pad from vehicles in their control.
The Company is also recalling an estimated 11 sets of these same building mats, that were sole as accessories between Nov 2017 and Mar 2018.
