2014 – 2015 WK Jeep Grand Cherokee
What are the defects?
The electronic shift lever in the vehicle does not move like a conventional shifter and the driver may inadvertently fail to correctly engage the “PARK” position before exiting the vehicle if the engine is left running.
What are the hazards?
If the vehicle isn't correctly engaged in the 'PARK' position it may roll away and potentially result in a crash and or injury to occupant or others.
What should consumers do?
FCA Australia will notify vehicle owners who can take their vehicle to a Jeep dealership whereby the vehicle will have work conducted to safe guard against the possibility that the vehicle is not properly put into the “PARK” position.
Consumers should always check that their vehicle is in the PARK position and that the hand brake is applied before exiting the vehicle.
