Over 2,000 export models affected

Jeep, a subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), is voluntarily recalling an estimated 37,372 2016 Grand Cherokees worldwide to address the potential for a certain wire-harness terminal to lose its electrical connection. The recall states that the shifter may become locked in "PARK" or "NEUTRAL" once the vehicle is brought to a stop. 

Upon investigation by FCA, the company traced the cause to supplied wiring harnesses, some of which may have been incorrectly crimped. The Company is unaware of any potentially related injuries or accidents. In the US, around 32,267 Grand Cherokees are affected. Outside the US, 2,095 vehicles in Canada are affected by the recall. An estimated 538 units are included in Mexico and 2,472 outside the NAFTA region.

Auto Nation Group, the official distributor of Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep vehicles in the Philippines, has yet to comment on the matter.
