Update: Additional 189,000 Chrysler SUVs recalled, nonprofit says it’s not enough

DETROIT — The Center for Auto Safety says the recall is inadequate because other vehicles are also affected by the safety issues.

DETROIT — Chrysler has recalled another 189,000 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durangos in the U.S., according to wivb.com.

The recall was issued to fix a fuel pump problem that can cause the vehicles to stall, said the article.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) posted the recall, which covers some 2011 models with 2.6-liter V6 or 5.7-liter V8 engines, stated the article.

Chrysler “began looking into the problem in October 2013 and traced it to a spring that can become deformed because of heat,” noted the article. Other possible problems include the vehicle not starting, or the fuel pump working when the engine is shut off.
