About the Jeep Grand Cherokee Recall

There have been 14 complaints from drivers reporting that vehicles have rolled away after being put in park. The instances have resulted in five crashes and three injuries.

According to KCCI, the Jeeps have electronic gear selectors, and when the shift lever is pulled the shifter does not move along a track.

The current recall covers 408,000 Grand Cherokees, model years 2014 and 2015.

NHTSA Launches Investigation

According to Reuters, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has launched an investigation into the issue.

The investigation will attempt to determine the scope and frequency of the defect. They will then decide on if additional action needs to be taken.
