FCA Recalls SUVs for Engine Stalling
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV is calling back 698,000 SUVs worldwide to again fix a fuel pump problem that could cause the engine to stall or refuse to start.
The recall applies to certain 2011-2013 model Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee midsize SUVs. About 75% of the targeted vehicles are in the U.S.
FCA says silicon deposits on electrical contacts within the fuel pump could block current and shut down the pump. The company notes that many of the same vehicles were recalled in 2014 to address the same problem.
According to Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet truck marketing director, “We engineer and build our trucks with customers’ expectations in mind.”
It’s the fifth generation of a vehicle that has been increasing in sales year after year since its introduction in 1997.
Although the RAV4 has plenty of heritage in the small crossover segment, competition has gotten a whole lot tougher, so Toyota has made significant changes to the fourth-generation model.
