Chrysler Recalls Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango Vehicles
Chrysler has announced a recall affecting roughly 6,120 model year 2014 Dodge Durango, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT and Jeep Cherokee vehicles.
When the adaptive cruise control on the recalled vehicles is engaged and the driver presses the accelerator pedal to increase the vehicle's speed more than the cruise control system would on its own, the vehicle may continue to accelerate briefly after the accelerator pedal is released.
The unintended continued acceleration may increase the risk of a crash.
Chrysler will notify owners of the affected Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango vehicles, and a local Chrysler dealer will re-flash the Driver Assistance System Module (DASM). This service will be provided free of charge.
For additional information on this recall, contact Chrysler Customer Service toll-free at (800) 853-1403. Chrysler's reference number for this recall is P31.
