Chrysler has issued a recall affecting more than 30,000 model year 2016 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles equipped with a 3.6L engine built at the Saltillo engine plant.

During the assembly of the engine installed on the affected vehicles, the fuel rail crossover tube may have been damaged, which, over time, may result in a fuel leak.

A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a vehicle fire.

The Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs included in this recall were manufactured from February 10, 2016 to April 28, 2016.

Chrysler will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and Dodge/Jeep dealers will inspect the engine assembly for damage to the fuel rail crossover tube, replacing it as necessary, free of charge.

This recall is expected to begin on December 19, 2016. Owners with further questions can contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403.

Chrysler's reference number for this recall is S85.
