FCA recall thousands of SUVs to repair possibly defective engines
One of the world’s largest vehicle manufacturer, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), is expected to recall the engines of approximately 50,000 Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV) that could malfunction, a December 23 article of ABC News reported.
Though the recall was issued worldwide, reports revealed that majority of the affected vehicles were in the U.S. According to reports, the 2.4-liter or 2-liter engines in the 2016 models of Jeep Compass, Dodge Journey, and Patriot may suddenly stop from running during operation. FCA explained that such problem could happen if the engines’ sensor connector were to work improperly. FCA told reports that they have not received any incidents of injuries or accidents before they issued the recall. Fiat Chrysler dealers will notify affected owners for the replacement of the engine components in their vehicles.
