The nearly 30,000 Grand Cherokees are being recalled because of a crack in an engine component that could lead to a fire.
FCA has issued a recall for 28,884 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs from model years 2014 to 2019 equipped with the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine. The recall is due to the potential for the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) cooler to crack because of “thermal fatigue,” which could lead to vaporized coolant entering the intake manifold and potentially resulting in a fire, according to a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
FCA said that it is unaware of any injuries or accidents as a result and said it will fix this issue by replacing that part with one not susceptible to cracking. The automaker will begin notifying the owners of the affected vehicles beginning on December 31.
Jeep owners can check the NHTSA website or NHTSA’s new recall app to see if their vehicle is involved in the recall.
