Fiat Chrysler Automobiles To Recall 50,000 SUVs Over Engine Stall Issue

Written By:

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling around 50,000 small SUVs globally. The reason for this recall is the issue in the engine which leads to a sudden engine stall while driving.

The recalled FCA models are Dodge Journey, Jeep Compass and Patriot. The defect is found in the models manufactured in the year 2016.

All the three models are powered by 2-litre or 2.4-litre four cylinder engines. The company has stated that a sensor connector in the engine can malfunction.

The malfunctioning sensor connector can cause the SUVs to either stall while driving or fail to start. FCA said that it has not known about any crashes or injuries due to this issue.

Most of the recalled vehicles are sold in the US market, and the models were built during an 11 week period last spring.

The dealers will replace the malfunctioning sensor connector for the crankshaft and camshaft. Owners will be notified about when to bring the SUV for repairs.
