Chrysler Recalls 230,000 SUVs

Destiny Baker2 years ago

Chrysler has issued a recall for more than 230,000 Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees due to a fuel pump defect that could result in engine stalls.

About the Chrysler Fuel Pump Recall

According to CNN Money, the problem stems from the electronic circuitry, called the Total Integrated Power Module (TIPM), that also regulates the vehicles’ airbags and other features, but Chrysler assured the public that those features are not affected by the defect.

Last month, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) launched a probe into complaints concerning such electronic glitches, including engine stalls.

The investigation came on the heels of GM’s massive ignition switch recall. The GM defect was inked to engine stalls that resulted in multiple accidents, airbag failures, and deaths –many lawmakers criticized NHTSA for its failure to identify the dangerous defect in a timelier manner.

Chrysler has not linked any deaths to the current recall, and NHTSA announced last week that it would continue to label engine stalls as a customer inconvenience rather than a safety issue, despite outcry by watchdog groups and members of congress.

Vehicles Included in the Chrysler Fuel Pump Recall

  • The recall affects roughly 230,000 2011 model year Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees.
  • 189,000 of the affected vehicles were sold in the U.S., 16,000 in Canada, 7,000 in Mexico and 19,000 elsewhere.
