Some Cherokees recalled for rare issue

by David Zatz on

Jeep is voluntarily recalling around 53,000 Cherokees with power liftgates to install better moisture shielding for their electronics. The recall affects only Cherokees made after February 18, 2015, for the 2015 and 2016 model years.

There was a similar recall in June, for Cherokees made before February 18.

The company is not aware of any related accidents. This latest campaign affects certain model-year 2015 and 2016 Jeep Cherokee SUVs, but is limited to vehicles equipped with power liftgates. Customers will be contacted; modules that appear to have been exposed to water will be replaced, and all work will be done free.  In the meantime, Jeep asked affected Cherokee owners with power liftgates to keep their cargo areas dry, and if needed, to contact the company at 1-800-853-1403. The recall does not affect Cherokees with manually operated liftgates.
