Crysler is facing a huge recall after certain incidents were encountered with the 2005-2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2006-2010 Jeep Commander.
Reports indicate that faulty electronics in the transfer case can cause the affected vehicles to shift into neutral on their own.
The first incident that revealed this problem was when an owner remotely started his car and watched it roll away without him. This could be quite dangerous, as a runaway car can cause a lot of damage, especially large SUVs like the Grand Cherokee and Commander.
Crysler will start the recall this June, and if you own one of the 469.000 units plagued by the malfunction, you will be able to take it to any dealer and get it fixed for free. Until then, the car maker will have to notify the buyers from around the world of this slight problem. You can also call them directly at 1-800-247-9753 and use the recall number N23.
So for another month, try to park your Jeep Grand Cherokke or Jeep Commander on flat terrain, for the “just in case”.
