In recent months, software glitches, defects in steering system tie rods, and a number of other flaws have prompted American-based auto manufacturer Chrysler to recall more than a million vehicles on the road. Chrysler launched an investigation looking into the issues at hand in April of 2013 when it received early complaints about glitches. The manufacturer has stated that it has been notified of accidents caused by the glitches, but it is not aware of the extent of injuries sustained by those individuals involved in the crashes.
Making headlines across the country, Chrysler recently recalled more than 1.2 million Ram trucks. The popular model was recalled when it was discovered that approximately 450,000 vehicles have improperly aligned steering system tie rods. The company needs to inspect all 1.2 million trucks to identify the ones with defects.
Jeep Grand Cherokees
In another major recall by Chrysler, more than 90,000 Jeep Grand Cherokees (2014 model year) are cited to have a software glitch that could disable both the antilock braking and the electronic stability-control mechanisms posing a serious danger to drivers. The malfunctioning software may activate multiple warning lights and result in the loss of illumination in the instrument cluster.
