Latest Fiat Chrysler recall affects 4.8 million vehicles

Fiat Chrysler has issued a recall of 15 Jeep, Ram, Chrysler and Dodge models built between 2014 and 2018 thereby affecting a total of 4.8 million vehicles.

According to the automaker owners of the affected vehicles should stop using the cruise control immediately due a potential defect that could leave the driver unable to cancel cruise control during certain circumstances. The recall issued by Fiat Chrysler is one of the largest ever issued in the U.S.

Fiat Chrysler says if drivers are unable to cancel cruise control, they can eventually stop the vehicle by shifting it into neutral and braking. Once the vehicle has stopped, drivers must put it in park in order to cancel the cruise-control engagement.

FCA says it will soon start notifying owners when they should bring their vehicles into dealerships for the repair. The automaker has said there has been no accidents, injuries or fatalities caused by the defect.
