WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Chrysler-parent Stellantis said Tuesday it is recalling just over 132,000 Jeep Cherokee SUVs in the United States for fire risks and warning owners to park outside until repairs are made.
The recall covers 2014 through 2016 model year Jeep Cherokee vehicles equipped with a power liftgate. An electrical short in the power liftgate module may lead to a vehicle fire with the ignition on or off.
It is the third recall for the issue since 2015. Vehicles repaired under prior recalls will still need to have the new fix performed, according to a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
