FCA Australia Pty Ltd — 2018 (KL) Jeep Cherokee equipped with 2.4L (ED6, ED8) engine
What are the defects?
The vehicles may have been built with an incorrectly manufactured fuel tube, which may result in a fuel leak and potentially a subsequent engine compartment fire.
What are the hazards?
An engine compartment fire due to a fuel leak could result in burns or smoke inhalation injuries to occupants and/or bystanders. The fuel leak could also cause the vehicle to lose power and shut down without prior warning, potentially causing an accident.
What should consumers do?
FCA Australia is contacting consumers when replacement parts are expected to become available in June 2018. Consumers will then be able to schedule an inspection and repair with their nearest authorised Chrysler Jeep Dodge dealer.
