Recall Alert: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee


Chrysler is recalling 4,458 model-year 2014 versions of the Jeep Grand Cherokee due to a problem with the headlamps, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from Jan. 14 through March 20, 2013, (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb) and are equipped with premium headlamps. Switching between daytime running lights and parking lights could lead to electrical spikes, which may cause the parking lamps to malfunction. The faulty lights fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

Chrysler will notify owners beginning in August, and dealers will update the affected software for free. Owners can call Chrysler at 800-247-9753 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
