Grand Cherokee interlock issue

by David Zatz on

Jeep is recalling 2016 Grand Cherokees because the shifter may be locked in Park or Neutral after a stop, if a wire harness was improperly crimped.

Not all of the roughly 37,000 2016 Grand Cherokees sold are at risk, but all should be checked by a dealer once the recall starts. Jeep advised customers to always use the parking brake when leaving their Grand Cherokee (a good practice in any case); it is also good to make sure the parking brake is adjusted properly and will stop the car.  FCA said it was unaware of any injuries or accidents; their customer hotline is 1-800-853-1403.
