2015 Jeep Cherokee recalled over fire risk

2015 Jeep Cherokee

Fiat Chrysler Australia (FCA) has issued a recall for its 2015 KL Jeep Cherokee due to a fire risk.

The fault involves the air-conditioning hose which may have been misrouted during the manufacturing process. 

The hose could come in contact with the engine exhaust manifold which may result in a leak of the refrigerant and oil from the air conditioning system potentially resulting in a fire.

A spokesperson for FCA said the recall affected 1297 vehicles in Australia. 

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by mail, and advised how to seek rectification at no cost. 

The Australian recall follows an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration after it received two customer complaints regarding this model in the United States involving smoke and fire. 

This is the 10th recall for FCA this year. The most recent also saw the KL Cherokee recalled following the discovery of a fault with the liftgate module.
