Needle-in-haystack Jeep-Dodge recall

by David Zatz on

FCA is recalling over 32,000 SUVs worldwide to find just thirty (estimated) that may eventually leak fuel.

Dodge Durango

At risk are the 2016 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee, with V6 engines. An FCA employee noticed and reported a fuel leak in one vehicle, because a “manufacturing anomaly” caused contact between a manifold fastener and the fuel rail.

Each vehicle will be inspected for the flaw, and if they have it, their fuel rails and lower intake manifolds will be replaced, if needed. Any customer who already has a fuel leak is being asked to contact their dealer immediately; otherwise, owners should wait for FCA to contact them.
