    Dodge accidentally put the wrong front wheels onto 173 Dodge Challengers and Chargers, which can cause the front tire to rub against the steering knuckle. FCA will replace the front wheels and, if needed, the front tires, and then do an alignment (if needed), under recall VB0. This recall...

    If you ever wondered just how popular the Ram 1500 diesel was, now you can get a clue from the latest recall: 107,898 2014-19 Ram 1500s have been recalled due to a problem with the diesel’s EGR coolers. What’s more, another 50,159 Ram 1500 diesels in Canada are being recalled, a stunning...

    Jeep is recalling a relatively small number of 2011-18 Wranglers with right-hand-drive (11,463 in the US—but none outside the US) because the driver’s seat belt buckle mounting strap can come out of the seat frame. This recall, #VA6 (NHTSA 19V68), only affects U.S.-market Jeeps with the steering...

    Dragging Rams. FCA is recalling around 6,000 2019 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups and Ram 3500 chassis cabs in all markets, because the brake calipers may have been made with contaminated fluid. That can cause the caliper's seals to swell, which would make the brakes drag; it could cause the brakes to...

    Chrysler discovered that certain 2018 Pacificas made between November 1, 2017, and March 1, 2018, have steering joints that  may separate, albeit under unusual conditions (e.g. if they are not torqued correctly, and there is a wrongly positioned opening). If the joint separates, the driver can...

    Ram is recalling a few dozen 2019 Ram 1500s, because the seat-track position sensor on manually-adjusted passenger seats may come out of position. That means the airbag may detonate too forcefully, if the seat is all the way forward. The recall should begin within around a month (FCA #UB7, NHTSA...

    FCA is recalling Jeep Grand Cherokees with the most powerful engine options to replace the driver’s-side floor mats, because they can trap the gas pedal and result in a runaway. The recall covers over 5,000 Grand Cherokee SRTs and Grand Cherokee Trackhawks, which tame their 485-707 horsepower...

    Two Jeeps and the Pacifica Hybrid are being recalled, for different reasons. First, the easy one: 2019 Jeep Cherokees with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine have “improper” transmission calibration, which may cause stalling. The fix is re-flashing the transmission, in a recall coded UA9 and...

    Two FCA recalls made themselves known today, two of which involve bleeding customers: Brake fluid. Due to a supplier providing an out-of-spec part, FCA is recalling just over 200,000 2018 Dodge Journeys and 2018-19 Grand Caravans, and 2018-19 Jeep Compasses and 2019 Cherokees. The brakes...

    A rather embarrassing item on today’s recall agenda is the nine-speed automatic in the 2018 Pacifica (except Hybrid) and 2019 Cherokee; one part of the transmission may not be welded properly, resulting in a loss of power. Never fear, though, apparently just five transmissions in vehicles sold...

    According to a recent NHTSA release, FCA is recalling 2015-17 Ram pickups, both light and heavy duty, because the tailgate may suddenly open when driving. Exempted from the recall are 2015-17 trucks made with eight-foot beds, or without power locking tailgates. It covers Ram 1500, 2500, and...

    There haven’t been a lot of 2.0 liter engines made so far, if a new Cherokee recall (NHTSA #18V344000) is any indication. Just 14 vehicles in the US, and one elsewhere, are being recalled because the engines may have been built without valve-stem keepers, which may allow the valve to drop into...

    Today, FCA announced that it was recalling 4.8 million cars and trucks in the US, as well as an unnamed number elsewhere in the world, to fix a rare condition in which the cruise control could get stuck and refuse to shut off.   The solution for drivers in this case would be to stop the vehicle...

    The recall doesn’t cover many 2018 Jeep Wranglers, but it’s still a doozy, because the company is still trying to develop a remedy. Recall U27 covers just over 100 Wranglers sold in the US, presumably as well as a scattering sold elsewhere; and of these, only around half are probably an...

    With millions of poorly engineered or built Takata airbags used by nearly every automaker, government and industry chose to recall vehicles state by state and car by car, replacing the highest risk airbags first. The recall has now hit 317,000 Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, and Jeep cars and trucks...

    FCA is recalling over 160,000 2017 Pacifica minivans because, under rare conditions, the engine computer can cause a stall. Most events reported involved very low speeds or idling, while starting or turning.  Customers were able to restart immediately after the stall. There has been one...

    Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram vehicles have all been recalled to replace Kidde fire extinguishers that come along for the ride — from 2004 Durangos to 2018 Pacificas — as part of the Roadside Emergency Kit. If your vehicle does not have the kit, there’s no recall on your car; the company...

    Alfa Romeo is recalling the 2018 Giulia and Stelvio, because the factory may have used contaminated brake fluid. The recall will start on February 8, with an FCA recall number of T84 and an NHTSA campaign number of 17V823000. Only 307 vehicles sold in the United States were affected...

    The new 2017-18 Jeep Compass is a very nice package, with one big flaw: Jeep changed the design after its release, so the gauges stay daylight-bright at night — and aren’t affected by the dimmer switch. It turns out that’s against the law, because bright gauges hurt the driver’s night vision...

    FCA is recalling 8,000 units of the 2018 Jeep Compass already on the road for a potential loose fastener problem in a front airbag, the company announced Wednesday. No injuries or accidents have been reported among the 8,000 affected sold units that the company is aware of. But a supplier has...
