ST. LOUIS, MO — The Waterway carwash chain said it will no longer wash Jeep Grand Cherokees due to the fact that they can suddenly accelerate, KUSA-TV reported.

The carwash company released the following statement: "Waterway has experienced an unacceptable number of dangerous and costly accidents involving pre 2011 Jeep Cherokees. At Waterway, employee and customer safety is our chief concern. Therefore we have made the decision to stop washing these vehicles."
