Cherokee moving again

Cherokee drivetrain

Chrysler told Larry Vellequette of Automotive News that Cherokee repairs will be implemented more quickly than originally thought, and that the second shift will be returning on Monday, though so far no Cherokees have been released to dealers.

Mr. Vellequette’s sources said that the issue was related to the way the engine, transmission, and axles work together; Chrysler spokesman Jodi Tinson confirmed this.

At least 12,000 Cherokees have been built and are awaiting a “flash” to fix the problem, tying up nearly one third of a billion dollars in inventory (at retail prices). To ensure that the problem is fixed on each vehicle, each and every one will be test driven before it can be released.

Production was originally scheduled to begin May 23, but must reach showrooms by September 30 to make the end of the quarter.
