Large, but minor, Jeep/Dodge recall

by David Zatz on

Chrysler is recalling around 895,000 2011-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durangos  to reroute wiring for vanity-mirror lights, which may short-circuit and cause fires if serviced improperly — cars whose headliner or vanity mirrors have not been removed should have no problems.

Three injuries have been reported.  The recall involves installing a spacer / wire guide on all vehicles — not just whose which have had their headliners or sun visors serviced.

Customers will be notified when the company is ready to make the upgrade, but can call Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403 with questions. Recalls typically take months to start, given the need to create hundreds of thousands of parts.
