Jeep Recall History

The Jeep brand has been part of some significant recalls over the past several years, including some SUVs recalled for concerns over remote hacking, fire risks after rear-end crashes and Takata airbag inflators.

More than 1.5 million older Jeep models were part of a high-profile 2013 recall for fuel tanks that could fail or leak in rear crashes, possibly causing a fire. That recall includes 1993-98 Grand Cherokees and 2002-07 Liberty SUVs and NHTSA has linked the problem to more than 50 deaths. Installing a trailer hitch is the fix for that recall. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV says 35.5 percent of vehicles had been fixed as of January 2016, the latest data available.

In July 2015, Fiat Chrysler recalled more than 1.4 million vehicles including some 2014-15 Grand Cherokees and Cherokees over hacking concerns. The vehicles’ radios can allow someone to remotely access some vehicle control systems, increasing the risk of a crash. The recall followed a remote hack by Wired magazine hackers into a 2014 Cherokee that included disabling the compact SUV’s engine and controlling features such as air conditioning, locks and radio. The fix is a software update and FCA closed the open cellular connection to the vehicles. This recall had a 98.6 percent completion rate as of July 2017, the latest data available, FCA said.

Some Jeeps, including 2014-15 Grand Cherokees, also are part of a 2016 recall of more than 800,000 vehicles for confusing electronic gear shifters. Fiat Chrysler is aware of 41 injuries that could be related to the defect, while NHTSA has said the problem may have been linked to the June 2016 death of “Star Trek” actor Anton Yelchin, who died after being pinned between his 2015 Grand Cherokee and a fence.

Some drivers may not know their vehicle, equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission, isn’t in park and may leave the car or SUV and could be injured by the moving vehicle. The remedy for that recall is a software update. Fiat Chrysler said 78.3 percent of vehicles had been fixed as of April 2018, the latest data available.

Jeep Wranglers from 2007-16 model years also are part of the massive Takata airbag inflator recall, the largest auto recall in U.S. history. Fiat Chrysler has called back millions of vehicles with Takata driver and passenger side airbag inflators. Takata airbags can explode and send shrapnel into the vehicle, injuring or even killing people.

FCA said 44.7 percent of its recalled Takata inflators have been fixed as of June 2018.

In May 2018, Fiat Chrysler recalled 4.8 million vehicles because of a problem that could prevent a driver from being able to cancel cruise control. That recall included 2014-18 Cherokee, 2014-18 Grand Cherokee and 2018 Wrangler SUVs, among others.

Customers have been advised not to use cruise control until their vehicles are fixed with a software update. Recall completion data is not yet available.
