Approximately 1,242 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk SUVs in the U.S. are being recalled.
The recall is being conducted because the affected vehicles potentially have fuel lines that may separate and cause the Trackhawks to stall or catch on fire in the engine compartments. An investigation into the issue was first opened on December 19, 2017 after a report of possible problems with the fuel lines. FCA engineers worked with supplier Martinrea Intl Inc., analyzing two failed parts and discovering a sensor that was misaligned on a machine that assembled the parts.
The American automaker has received no reports of crashes, injuries, or warranty claims, but has decided the safest course of action is to recall the vehicles.
Only about five percent of Trackhawks are vulnerable and affects vehicles built from October 10 to December 10, 2017. The recall is expected to begin on March 2, 2018 and dealers will inspect the fuel lines, replacing them if necessary.
